Wise friend, great soul, and high unconquered heart,
Tho we may not attend you any more,
You will go with us down the years before.
In every soul you hold a place alone,
Like rare old music echoed tone by tone.
Unstintingly to us yourself you gave,
In loving sacrifice, sincere and brave.
Gay comrade — you have smiled thru all your part.
The utter wonder of you shall come back
To haunt us on a far-off, lonely day
When we desire to think on something true —
For Life, at best, is pitiful with lack —
And your undaunted spirit light our way,
We shall lift up our heads, and breathe, remembering

If anyone has any ailment, real or imagined, "Bea" is our
district nurse and if you don't feel tip-top before you're half
sick, — well it isn't any fault of hers. When she gets up
there in Alaska or Greenland she will only have to sing a
little song to keep Jack Frost away, gather all her resources
of good cheer, perseverance, and faith, add a little knowledge
of the ways of human nature, and all evils will vanish from
her missionary station in short order. Our best wishes go
with you, "Bea".

Several years ago a girl in the far country of Norway
yearned to go to America to secure an education and become
a religious teacher. Filled by pluck far beyond what most
of us have, she came to this New World and eventually en-
tered Bates as a valued member of 1923. Her Christian
spirit, her never failing zeal, and her originality have been of
great service to college activities. We shall follow her career
with interest for we feel from past records the conviction of
her success in making her dreams of the College for girls in
Norway come true.
Jeanne Cecile Bachelin, A. B.
What made you think I did?

Wherever you find Jeanne you are sure to see a pair of
big beaming brown eyes and hear an irresistible giggle. It
is hard to group Jeanne's most striking characteristics under
any of the laws of unity and coherence because of her varied
accomplishments as you can see from the above list. A very
busy lady with her French assistantship, her social service
work, and her good times.

"Good things are done up in small packages". When we
first gazed upon Billie's minute body we remembered that
good old proverb. She has surely been no exception to it.
She is the best little sport, ready for any task or any kind of
good fun. And do you ever remember of seeing her cross?
Never! She is one of those rare persons who meet the world
with the same even disposition and you just feel glad that
you have a friend like Billie.

You can see by the length of Mil's activities that she is a
very much alive sort of person. The profs! Oh my, — they
just look over the heads of us poor ignoramuses at her shin-
ing halo. But there is distinctly a contagious side to Mil.
You can't be with her five minutes before you are thorough-
ly enjoying a good hearty laugh.

"Some like 'em hot; some like 'em cold", but everybody
likes Teddy every way. She bursts on a studious group with
"Listen girls, I've got kind of a funny joke to tell you", and
Ted tells us some witty little paragraph and probably has to
explain it to us, — but does it all with unfailing mirth. Her
being is filled with romance and into the drabbiest existence
she could inject a thrill.

yet he has been an important factor in the success of the

an outing on the river-bank or Pole Hill, or a cross country
run, Ray is always on hand, ready and willing to help. His
readiness to assist and his dependability has won him many
friends. The presidency of the Student Council testifies to
his popularity. Ray is a man of whom we all are proud.

"This is a dull, lonesome life," quoth he, and forthwith
Bert departed the forbidding halls of the Monastery, forever
renouncing the bachelorhood he so gaily entered on four
years ago. Bert is married but, in spite of this handicap
(although he assures us it is not one), he has given much of
his time to campus and class-room affairs. As our first class
president he did a good job. We were proud of him as a
football manager. He has done excellently with Military
Science. We feel sure Bert will always perform his tasks in
life with the same zeal he has displayed while in college.

Amy is our literary star. When we want a poem about
any subject in the universe, Amy from her poetic depths
produces it. When we want a delightfully thrilling story,
we go to the same unfailing source. We owe to her a good
bit for the fame she has added to our class. Not only is
Amy a literary genius but she has a great loving heart full
of sympathy and kindness for the unfortunate one in trouble.

Her set expression (see above), just describes Deborah.
You would never realize that she was around but get her
started on her adventures in Porto Rico or tales of "What we
used to do," then you know she's right there. Deborah studies
and studies — but sometimes she emerges — and then! She's
such an understanding sort of person, too. Here's to you,

Paris! New York! Pall Mall! The Elite Magazine!
To say nothing of a swell originality of costume that springs
from the well balanced head of Margaret Alice Blouin. She
has never been excited over anything. Remember the fairy
story about the Ice-hearted Princess? She had a lump of
ice instead of a heart, until the Prince came and restored the
flesh-and-blood organ. The prince hasn't come yet, — at
least, we haven't seen him, but there are rumors, rumors.
Alice has the artistic exterior if not the interior, — which
means temperament. She would never burst into tears of
vexation because a line or a word was wrong, — -she wouldn't
have to, — because it would not be wrong. Withal, she's a
very keen ridiculist, has a dangerous sense of humor, and is
a lot of fun.

"Brad" is the business man of the class; both he and his
black student bag are a familiar sight roaming around the
campus and to and fro from town. It's hard to tell whether
Harold spends more time at the college or downtown and it
isn't always business which takes him down either. He had
the difficult problem of piloting this Mirror over the rocky
path and we'll all say he did a mighty good job. Regardless
of what "Brad" undertakes we predict a bright future for
the erstwhile "bomber" of the S. A. T. C.

Here is a successful man. Look at his list of activities. He
has been as successful as he has been busy but in spite of his
limited leisure he has found time somehow, somewhere, for
co-education and in that he has been more than just success-

fact that we know you do not depend wholly on luck. Here's

When you know Helen as some of her nearest friends know
her you have discovered one of the richest and truest of
comrades. Her strong, Christian personality has a very help-
ful, uplifting influence upon those with whom she comes in
daily contact. But it is with her accordion, accompanied by
her sweet, clear voice that she is best known to the outside
world. Helen's voice and her music will never cease to at-
tract those whom she serves, and from her deep spiritual
nature they will find the help they need.

He is usually a rather quiet chap but when he gets started

endowed with the phenomenal grace of knowing all there is
to be known about anything without causing any ill feeling.
Even Mony cannot keep a surprised look out of his '"bale-
fully rolling" eyes when Marian fails to answer one of his
questions. But have you ever seen Marian write a paper,
prepare a lesson, or get ready for a quiz? Of course you
haven't for she is always reading modern fiction and doesn't
begin to study until the rest of us are on our way to class.
May she be as successful in after life as in college.

Dorothy entered with us in our Senior year and promptly
became a loyal 1923 girl. Altho she is quiet and reserved
compared to some of us who shriek wildly on our way, she
"gets there" very efficiently. Dot doesn't talk much about
herself, but some of us who know her appreciate her poetry
and essays, her love of beauty, and real strength of spirit. A
sense of humour true will help her over any snags. Whatever
career she enters cannot fail to be interesting.

''Limber Lill" has always been a popular leader of activities
during his four years in college and has ever been a booster of
Bates. He has boosted countless freshmen into side-door
Pullmans, cared for them, and piloted them safely through on
every freight car expedition to Bates athletic contests. It
only goes to show how capable he is of caring for himself and
of making his own way in the world. Burton (doesn't that
sound strange?) has the sincere wishes of his classmates for
success; but that goes without saying.

Neil is one of the local boys in one sense, at least he lives
in Auburn, but he prefers to room in Parker Hall, which is
saying a whole lot for the domicile. We see so little of Neil
that we hardly know him, but for all that, you can see by-
looking at his record that he has been quite prominent in
collegiate activities. Neil's professional talent on the violin
is well known to every town where the Musical Clubs have
performed, and he was always called back for an encore. In
the same manner Neil we hope to call you back for an
encore when we meet again!

Remember the quiet little girl with brown eyes who made
guard on the freshman basketball team? That same girl is
about the keenest, kindest, jolliest, — but why go on? She
has a wicked sense of humor; when that little glint comes
into her eyes, and that grin creeps around her mouth, you
may be sure something is on the way. Al has been a de-
moniacal guard since our first year, and perhaps in the game
developed the skill to manage about four hundred dirty,
squirmy, playground kids and remain immaculate and calm-
tempered through it all.

Don't you enjoy seeing a real wide-awake, 20th century
girl who can put anything across and not inconvenience her-
self in so doing? Tom is a famous perpetrator of all the

such a full fledged, medalized, peruser of the Metropolitan.

From the sloping eaves and dark seclusion of Whittier's
"Peanut Alley" to the lofty expansive roominess of Rand
Hall, "Al" has travelled along in ever increasing popularity.
Not only has she developed the gift of the Music Goddess
but she has shown some skill in the Palmer method. Alice's
real powers lie in being a mathematical shark and we are
sure of her fast progress upward on the scale of teaching.

How we have all enjoyed Grace's happy-go-lucky ways!
Studies never bothered her much and what is the use of
puzzling one's head about old lessons anyway? But when it
comes to prize speaking, parades, and the light fantastic toe
she is right there. What is to be her profession? Some of
us have been a bit suspicious of her ability in correspondence
courses, but here's hoping for happiness and lots of money
in whatever walk of life she chooses.

His ability to pull down forwards, punt, plow through the
line, or pull down an opponent about to go across for a
score will never be forgotten.
Always a gentleman, not only in sports but in everyday
life, John has made many friends and admirers all over the

Desco explains his coming to Bates by saying that the
Lewiston train left Norway before the Montreal train pulled
in and since he wasn't quite decided whether to adopt Bates
or McGill as his Alma Mater, he came to Lewiston. That is
characteristic of Desco. He takes what comes and makes
the most of it. We are all glad that he came to Bates.
Whatever he has been called on to do he has done with a
will, the true Bates spirit, whether it was pleading for Bates
in China or clog dancing at a Chase Hall entertainment.

Here is a puzzle to be sure. The puzzling thing is how he
does it. How does he move around so without even letting us
know where he is or where he is bound? How does he ar-
range it to be up with the birds every morning and how has
he escaped punishment due him for those weird noises drawn
from his 'cello at such an early hour? Well, as we said before,
it is a puzzle.

"Birdie" is the class baby, and to prove that he's still a
youth, he wears short pants. '"Birdie" is one of those quiet
chaps, who seldom become aroused. He's not in the habit
of talking, as he's out of practice after rooming with "Abie"
and "Sammie" for 2 years. However, here's a living example
of good things coming in small packages. He has efficiently
managed the track team during the past season and has
managed to do other things, but we won't tell, "Birdie."
Keep up the good work after you leave us, and we have no
doubt as to your success.

One of Ruth's greatest charms is her ability to make the
best of things — even if it's quarantine, matters might be
worse. We all admire your cheerful, untiring efficiency, Ruth,
on the Y. W. Bazaar committee this year. German Club and
lots of other activities will miss you, too. Besides, Ruth al-

Isn't she dear? Yes, we all think that Marion is all right.
Friendliness toward all just oozes from her jovial disposition
and if you ever feel blue, you have a chat with Marion and
before you realize it the blues have melted into her merry
laugh. There is not a girl in the class who will more quickly
or willingly do something for you. We know that she will
make homes happy wherever she goes.

Fair has two meanings; Dot is both. First, she is un-
doubtedly easy to look at; second, she has never been heard
to say an unjust or mean thing about anybody. Many of
Dot's experiences have been staged off campus; nevertheless,
she has made herself known thru her exquisite dancing, thru
her sunny temper, thru that rippling gurgle of a laugh that
nearly drowned out the Doxology in Chapel the other day,
and thru the fact of her getting along in every lesson with
apparently no worry and certainly no low marks.
Dot was, is, and always will be in our hearts and, we hope,
in our company as a live '23-er.

"Johnny" is the gay Lothario of them all. It is said that
there is a co-ed whom John was never out with, but to this

broad grin and curly hair, one can't just blame the girls.
Even when things arn't going so good, John never worries,
he just gets out his banio and strums a lively tune, then
bursts forth into "melody."

There was a time in the course of Warner's career in col-
lege with us when we felt inclined to shake our heads of an
evening and sigh, "Alas, Warner has gone to the — (a breath-
less pause) nurses." Hence his ability to speak authorita-
tively on matters pertaining to the C. M. G. But all that
is over with now, he assures us. Warner is a young man
with a serious turn to his mind. He has a purpose in life
and even now in preparation for his work makes weekly mis-
sionary journeys to the far off fields of East Wilton. By the
way, Warner, what town is it that manufactures more tooth-
ipicks than any other town in the world?

Hats off to Bill, the greatest of all football captains that
ever led a garnet team on the gridiron. It was a simple
task for Bill to send Bowdoin back to Brunswick with sad
memories of that 7 to 3 defeat. Playing every minute of
every college game for four successive years is some stunt
for an ordinary man, but Bill pulled off this feat as easy as
he would pack away a good-sized feed at a De Witt ban-
quet — and that's some easy.
We hate to see such a wonderful athlete as Bill leave
Bates, but we cannot help wishing him good luck in what-
ever he attempts. He is sure to be a success anywhere. If
you want to keep a line on him, just watch the newspapers.

Here he is Our best. When in need of friendly advice
or an extended vocabulary, Jim, with his epicurean philosophy,
will remedy all evils. Ever handy with iodine or scalpel, he
is the "first aid" artist of Parker Hall. For two stormy years
he has piloted "The Commons" bean joint, and we have
admired the polished way in which he makes announcements.
So we hesitate to believe it can possibly exist without him.
We are really thankful to Jim for putting so many laborious
hours in the preparation of those Chase Hall dances, and our
wish for him is: may he be as successful in life.

Alta of the eyelashes! As we write this we can hear Alta
turning off the compliment with, "Say, aren't you nice! Say-
er-won't you come down to the Qual?" Alta can never be-
lieve that the nice things we say about her are true. She
knows a lot of interesting things about people and if you're
good she will tell you. But for a' that, we've never learned
the origin of her Dartmouth seal pin. Her favorite words are
"gee" and "swell," but they color her speech so intriguingly
that we'd miss them if she left them out. Alta gets high
rank without any ostentation and she deserves it.

It is said that college is a place in which we find ourselves.
Here is a man who has made use of college — who has grown.
Lloyd has earned his own way, but he has found time for
study, and is always right up there with the leaders. "A's"
are as common to him as bees are to a bee-hive. If perse-
verance and conscientious effort ever get a man anywhere,
then this classmate of ours will arrive — even if he does
bluster a bit, and attempt to sing now and then.

"Wes" believed that the noise of Parker House was hardly
conducive to studying, so he decided to have a house of
his own. Its a common occurance now to see "Wes" tearing
from the chemical laboratory across the campus, home to get
the dinner. However, he says there's nothing like it and we
don't know as we blame him. "Wes" had a lot of handicaps
to overcome, for instance, coming from a suburb of Saugus,
but he managed to live them down and has become one of
our prominent classmates.

Zip is one of the bright spots in our class — a spot of^

ball down the hockey field, the most popular girl at a dance,
cutting up cats at Bi. Lab., or presiding at Athletic Board.
Her experiences in co-education have been varied, too. We
are all glad that this bit of sunshine has been with us these
four years. •

Hunty has been witn^us during our four tempestuous years,
during which time he has devoted himself academically along
with a comprehensive course in Co-education. We expect
great things from Hunty. As a chemist we will find no equal.
We feel assured that all the reactions in which he is involved
during life will be quickly dissolved, due to his dynamic force
and straight thinking. A cheerful nature, a care-free manner,
and a smiling disposition — we have, enjoyed all thes% in pur
all too short companionship.

Bates wanted to raise a million — so* of course '23 elected
Al to see that we did our part. Y. W. C. A. needed a social
chairman, and who but Al could fill that place? Somebody
wants a poster made, or her hair curled — and Al does it.
And she still finds time for co-education and lots of other
things. However, we fear that her heart is no longer at
Bates. The sunny south seems likely to claim Al before
long. Here's the best of good wishes for her.

Ollie is different from the rest of us. He sleeps days and
moves around at night. No, I won't say he is different, be-
cause we have all done that more or less, but Ollie has done
it just more. He is a champion in his line. Such men as
Edison and Ollie are apt to be eccentric. Edison goes with-
out sleep. Ollie gets his in the day time. Ollie resembles
Edison more, however, because of his mechanical ability. An
old alarm clock or a wind-broken flivver and Ollie is happy.

He has more than entered into the spirit of the class, he has
been a creator of class spirit. Bill is ready to lend a hand
to aid any worthy Bates enterprise and his aid works won-

do things. We are sure of a quick response when we ask her

Ken has become a familiar figure on campus, swinging
along toward the class-room, bag in hand. This boy joined
us in our junior year and has made a place for himself by
his kindly smile and pleasant greeting. Although Ken has
lived off campus he has engaged in many campus activities.
He rendered valuable assistance as property man for the
Million Dollar play last year. With his assistance, the
Freshmen have learned how to "'orate" in public. Ken has
won his way by his willingness to lend a helping hand wher-

past. During the two years that he has been with us, Har-
ris has won many friends. The interest he has shown in
campus activities makes us wonder what he would have ac-
complished if he had been with us all four years. He be-
lieves in studying, too, although he has been known to re-

as studying." Harris says he is going to be a missionary,
and judging from his interest he now shows we are sure he
will reach his goal. Good luck to you, Harris.

If Abie's worth was measured by his bulk, he would be
worth very little but it isn't measured that way. Abie is a
big man except for bulk. He came to America in 191 1 and
went to grammar school until 191 3. Then he worked until
1916, when he returned to high school, being graduated in
1919. Now he is a Bates man and there has never been a
more enthusiastic one. We will not have to say any more
about Abie. He speaks for himself.

that she is loaded down with a whole lot of responsibility?
Allow us to introduce her as a most successful and efficient
Y. W. C. A. president. And that isn't all. We hear that
she is passing with honors one of the most strenuous courses
in co-education ever offered at this college. But best of all,
she is never too busy to look out for other people, and cheer
up someone who isn't as happy as she is. Good luck, Bunny.

Bertha ought to have a studio with a big piano, dusky

her hair before she had it bobbed? It hung way down to her
knees, bronze-copper and thick. Yet she has been perfectly
happy with a frivolous Dutch cut. She could have gone thru
college with A in everything; she could have flunked every
subject if she had wanted to; but she turned her energies
toward getting the most out of college and life in general.

can do. Besides carrying anywhere from twenty-one to thirty
recitation hours a week, Nelly is a most popular Student

The one word above all others which characterizes Hazel is
"Life." "Wake up," "Do it now," "Make it peppy," "Show

is sort of a "Jack of all trades," but she is a skillful Jack
whether making a speech, accompanying the Glee Club, shoot-
ing baskets or embroidering on that bureau scarf. She is a
hustler, to say the least, and will surely be able to fill the re-

It takes four years to get to know her and even then there
are little corners and crannies about her personality that hold
the most delightful secrets anyone ever found. Mabel al-
ways showed a fondness for the "Small" things in life and
"Wes" showed sense in picking her way back in 1919. She
can ■ cook, keep house, hike, row, swim, shingle piazza roofs,
and incidentally, break track records for Bates in standing
and running high jumps. Mabel might be in India now, but,
fortunately for '23, she chose an A.B. instead.

and yet get her studying all done in time to be ready for
any spree." We would suggest that an electric attachment
be placed on her couch, connecting it with the rising bell so
that with this added stimulus she may be able to regain a
state of consciousness long enough before to occasionally get
to breakfast. We have our doubts as to anything being be-
yond her reach and when it comes to putting things through,
Babe, you're there.

There's no doubt about it. Carl is a worker. And he
works on a system, too. Greek: 2.30-2.59; Meeting of Out-

Johnny doesn't believe in all work. He wants to mix in

Johnny can always be counted on to support campus social
activities and also those not on the campus. He is a well

as well where work is concerned, though. Don't make a mis-

Anyone as good looking as Bob doesn't need to be anything
else, but Bob is lots of other things. Y. W. couldn't get along
without her, and what would Seniority do without its Presi-
dent? Besides, Bob is the best sport in the world and a friend
to everybody. We all love her, because, — well, she's just Bob.

Rob has divided his time into three parts, week-ends at
his church in North Anson; days on the campus; nights in
Auburn; that is his schedule. Sleep? He doesn't need it,
so he tells us. We wonder why. This classmate of ours
during the three years hs has been with us, has proven him-
self to be a very versatile and talented young man.

Deep within the fastnesses of Hed_,e Laboratory, gazing into
some foul and boiling mixture; surrounded by beakers, test-
tubes, funnels, and evil smelling chemicals, stands Rob.
Hour by hour he seeks the mysteries of the universe within
the test tube. But, spite of these many hours spent so
eagerly in the noxious Lab., he yet has found time for some
of the social graces. It is rumored that girls have an inex-
plicable appeal to him like the forgotten formula of a won-
drous chemical. With ardent zeal the charms of each he
follows — an eager sacrifice upon love's altar. May success
attend your efforts, Rob. We know you'll meet the girl
complete — and support her in comfort on more than C H 0.

"Viv" holds the honorable distinction of being the best
woman debater in the class. It's part of her creed to have an
opinion of her own on most subjects and we admire her for
not being afraid to express Iter opinion. "Yiv" has been con-
sidered by her classmates as the "manhater" although she
says she adores a real man like Prof. Gould. Nothing is quite
as pleasing to "Viv" as History. Many a time have we heard
of her plans to study abroad but since she is such a staunch
believer in the G. 0. P., we foresee a brilliant future for her

Arthur ''Red" Scott, another living example that proves
the old adage, "Gardiner produces many good men." This
tall, auburn-haired youth of stately carriage and refined
manners has made many friends during his career at Bates.
Scottie is very much at home on the gridiron, the hockey
rink, or in any branch of social life. He has one big failing
that we must not overlook — those frequent migrations to
Gardiner and Augusta.
Arthur will be here next fall to lead the football team to a
successful year. He's bound to be a success as captain of
Coach Cutts' aggregation. We wish him luck, and are sure
that he will far surpass all our expectations.

Leona knows a good thing when she sees it and so she de-
cided to come back and graduate with 1923. You wouldn't
think to judge by her photograph that she has already been
a dignified high school teacher. That's where Leona has
stolen a march on the rest of us. Not only is our Leona dig-
nified, however, she is also — be it whispered softly — ro-
mantic. Else why the frantic perusal of Italian dictionaries
and why the letters addressed to "la Signorina Leona Sloan"
in a flowing foreign handwriting. But if you ask "la Sig-
norina," the Sphinx will not be more mute.

'"Smalley" is a great big lump of solid sugary happiness.
She supplies Rand Hall with sunshine long after Phoebus has
retired behind Mt. David and is to be commended for her
sweet temper. She is universally popular on both sides of
the campus and did you ever notice all kinds of good little
dots ' about her chin that melt into one another when she
laughs? Clarice is a loquacious enthusiast and believes in
talking steadily (It saves energy of starting a conversation
if one never ceases.) But we would not have her otherwise
and she will have friends wherever she goes.

Bill is an organizer and a promoter by nature. He came to
us in our sophomore year and ever since he has been organ-

arrived, the Outing Club was born. We will call Bill the
father of the Club. He has nursed, fed, and directed this
little Club until it has grown to be a big thing, one of the
biggest at Bates. Thank Bill for that.

"Stan" has been with us for four years, yet he remains
an enigma except perhaps to some particularly intimate
associates. He is a likeable chap, possessing a cheerful
disposition. He is noted for his week-end jaunts to —
perhaps more home-like surroundings. His automobiles have
been a great convenience, transporting hungry youths to and
from the Commons a la jitney style. As editor-in-chief of
this year's Bates "Bible"' he worked untiringly to make it a
worthy part of the college activities. Stan is an indefatigable
worker and we expect creditable performance of him in all

We approach you with great dignity, but knowing you as
we do we still dare _ call you "Bob." '23 realized Bob's
worth, and elected him president in the Junior year. Pol-

to turn. The baseball team wanted an efficient manager,
and — well, there was Wade. "Bob" has high ambitions.

Speaking of ton ues? We have often wondered whether
Carleton had one or not. Quiet and unobstrusive yet cordial
and friendly, describes Ov'alker. He has one great dream of
life: — adventure and his faithful study of Zane Gray betrays
the dream. Carleton is a philosopher as would naturally be
expected of one who talks so little and thinks so much. As a
business man he takes a place second to no one. Oh, yes.
Carleton will ret there and he won't be last, either.

Marcia is another girl who has never been cross. She
might get a Phi Beta, although the curly bobbed hair may
iinx that. She is a delightful entertainer, and is very oblig-
ing. She never talks about anyone unless it is to raise
that person's reputation. Exceedingly clever with a needle,
Marcia creates frock after dainty frock, and we have never
seen her with her shoes unshined.
Marcia might be called "The Kid" for surely she isn't a
day over twelve, especially when she confidingly tucks a
warm paw into yours, and gives an ecstatic little squeeze.
We only hope nothing will ever spoil the comfortable com-
panionship Marcia has always accorded us, and we never
want her to be so far away we can't see her once in a while

John is one of our New Hampshire products, quiet, modest
and retiring. For four years John reported faithfully on the
gridiron each day during the football season, and although
he never made his letter, no other football man ever gave
any more to his Alma Mater.
Football was not John's only struggle; he delights in
weighty problems. So he took mathematics for four years;
this alone should certify him to the Hall of Fame. When
John gets a calculus problem correct the first time, he cele-
brates by going to the show. We don't know how many
times he has been this year.
We wish John the best of luck in his undertakings.

we lament that her seat is so often empty at the appointed

To thee, oh glorious college class
We pledge our fealty,
Oh symbol, thou, of comradeship
Of life and loyalty;
Thou'st taught us love and youth's ideals
To live with purpose true,
And worthy bear thy name so fair
From now till time is thru,
Oh, '23, dear '23,
We pledge our faith to you.
Thy friendships cannot be replaced,
Thy mem'ry lasts for aye,
Thy inspirations ne'er effaced
Our guide to win the way;
Such joys as thine have made us live,
Thy trials made us strive,
Oh college years, thy smiles and tears
Build character the while.
Oh, college class, and college dear,
Our prayers of thanks arise.

Remembered beauty shall not fade with time,
We hold it close, a white star in our sky —
The murmur of the little town, flung high,
The kindly hill where earth tired feet could climb,
With all its human bliss, — its human pain,
The silent vows we made to cherish still
High-hearted dreams we shall not know again,
And loveliness we found upon the hill.
If Life shall sometime threaten to destroy
Our hope, our faith, we shall remember nights,
Clean wind, the song youth built of love and joy,
The wave of trees, a grey stone arch, and lights.
We shall arise from any shadows deep,
We shall know peace, without desire to weep.

Following the custom established by the preceding classes, the class of '23
will present the Greek drama MEDEA on Tuesday evening of Commence-
ment week. MEDEA stands as one of the most important and greatest of
the works of Euripides.
Medea, the barbarian wife of Jason, is doomed with her children to exile
in order that Jason may wed the beautiful daughter of the king of Corinth.
Overpowered by her primitive passions she determines to kill Jason and his
new bride for his treachery toward her. Aegeus, an old man from Argos,
offers Medea a home while she is in exile, at the same time hinting to her
that the children meant a great deal to Jason. Medea then decides to kill
Jason's bride and the children to gain her revenge. This she does and goes
into exile leaving Jason broken and miserable.

#i)i Beta Ikappa
On May 29, 1917 the Gamma of Maine Chapter of Phi Beta Kappa was installed
at Bates as a reward for the honored place which the college holds in national
scholastic activities. The long and esteemed history of the fraternity, together with
the strict conditions of its membership make it a goal for all seriously minded
The by-laws of the Gamma Chapter permit the election of ten per cent of the
Senior class, selected upon the basis of scholastic rank. The election takes place
soon after the opening of the second semester.
When the Bates Chapter was installed it was thot advisable to elect graduates
up to and including the class of 1907. Consequently the Chapter has each year
elected not only Seniors but a delegation from the "ten year class.''' Altho only a
certain percentage may be elected from each graduating class the doors of the
Bates Chapter of Phi Beta Kappa are never closed. Members of the class who
distinguish themselves in later life work will be elected to membership.

We, the glorious Class of 1924, have actually completed three years of our college
course. There is no mystery about it. We have simply sailed along hitting the high
spots and — well, perhaps we wish now we'd included some of the low spots as well.
Our career since we entered this institution has been remarkably mixed up with
million $ sandwiches, English 4-A Players, and various kinds of hops.
Sandwich-selling forms only one of the many projects we have promoted in
order to increase our class quota for the million. Our activities are too numerous
to mention, since we are confined to the high spots, but, nevertheless, important.
We are surely proud of those 4-A Players for they are the ones who have carried
our class to fame by starting the first real dramatic company on campus.
As for the dancers, no Sophomore class at Bates ever "hopped" in Chase Hall
before the class of 1924. To us be the honor!
Now that we have experienced Monie's English and Mac's Education we feel
that life holds little more which we shall not be able to face with fortitude. So we
look forward to our last year with a feeling of confidence that success is in store
for us and that when our career is over we shall have added a bit to the glory of our

Oh Bates, on the path that has led down the years,
Our steps have been guided by thee.
Tis thou who hast shown us the ever broadening way
Where the fruits of achievement be.
Thy sons and thy daughters would give thee, oh Bates,
The honor that none would deny thee,
As we meet once again in the circles of thy gates
To plant a bonny bit of the ivy.
Oh long may they stand as so long they have stood,
Thy walls that our forefathers builded.
Around them time shall shed a mellow light
And bright with memory's brush shall they be gilded,
For strong in thy promise of service sublime
Thou hast stood in the years that would try thee.
May our love for thee be as firm thru endless time
As thy walls that bear the clustering ivy.

Oh to be a Sophomore ! Such was the sigh usually accompanied with a tinge of
indignation, of many a freshie last year. Well, maybe you'd sense a bit of sym-
pathy with this seemingly rash statement, if you'd fully experienced the life of the
"Hazed" from bud to bloom; if you'd been associated with that fair Paddle to the
extent where even now you get a "shockey thrill" at the mere thought of it; if your
best and only suit had survived occasional forced relationships with Mother Earth
plus buckets full of water, plus an ancient egg or two as a kind of everlasting sea-
soning — that poor old suit with but one thread resembling the original !
Why rave on? We're Sophomores now! We're quite optimistic indeed, and in
glancing over the leaves in that last year's book of Bates life we find all passages
blurred except those relating our never-to-be-beaten class ride that fair autumn day,
the corking good banquet we had down town, and pages and pages brim full of
other jolly good times we had together.
The first darkness in our Sophomore year enshrouded us as Professor Baird
uttered that lone word which has lived through ages and seems still to be in the
flush of youth — Forensic! In spite of this, however, many fair females of '25 have
confessed a "crush on Birdie."
We love our Alma Mater. May she rightly call us "Worthy Children of '25."

We were once called Guileless, Gross, Gramineous, Grotesque Grubs; but never
again. O, no; we passed that stage when the last of the initiation was completed
and we became full-fledged Freshmen. Now we can wear knickers on the street
without having a fear of the hostile paddle. We can be seen with our lady or
gentleman friend, as the case may be, without that guilty feeling of one who
commits a crime. We know that our attempt to put girls on the Student Council
was in vain, yet we hope and have faith that some day our opinions will be sought
after. We know that, with three such fine upper classes for our examples, in the
year of 1926 we will have become a class that will make Bates College proud.

The Jordan Scientific Society was organized in 19 10 for the purpose of promot-
ing interest in science along lines of research and everyday problems. Its mem-
bership is restricted to eighteen members of which thirteen are seniors and five are
juniors. Because of its limited membership special recommendation from the fac-
ulty is necessary.
At its meetings, which are held bi-monthly, interesting and instructive papers
are presented by the members along every line of scientific work. These, combined
with the interesting lectures contributed by members of the faculty, make up a
very complete program.
Besides the regular meetings of the society trips are taken through local mills
and manufacturing establishments in order to acquaint the members with the ap-
plied side of science.
The Jordan Scientific Exhibition, which has become one of the most interesting
exhibits of the college year, has expanded so that every branch of science studied
in the college receives an extensive display. The hearty cooperation of the faculty
makes the exhibit one of special interest to prospective students in deciding their
line of work.
The rapid growth in the society's importance has been due largely to the sup-
port given it by the late Dr. Lyman G. Jordan from whom the society received its

Spofford Club, which had its birth in 1910, is one of the few clubs on campus
which hold weekly meetings. The fifteen members are chosen from those stu-
dents most keenly interested in creative literature, in all its branches.
Very helpful are the criticism and suggestions of the members regarding one an-
The programs are diversified — there are short stories, verse free and verse re-
strained, dramas, essays, and sketches of various sorts.
Although Spofford is literary, it has a normal and healthy nature; for its mem-
bers treasure the memory of sleigh-rides, picnics, and gay parties.
Spofford Night, which occurs annually, brings an original drama before the col-
lege. The date of this event for the current year was April 27, when Spofford
presented "The Honor of the Sex" a play in one act, and "Card Learns," a two
The club appreciates in a very real way Professor Spofford, its founder, and Pro-
fessor Baird, its loyal faculty member.

Politics Club looks back upon another successful year. At its regular meetings
subjects of current interest in the political and economic world have been presented
by selected members and discussed by the club as a whole.
The club sponsored the debate on Socialism between Professor Carroll and Dr.
Norman Thomas of New York. It was also the agent which brought about the
visit of Mr. Kenneth Lindsay of Oxford University.
This organization, comprised of twenty-five men, meets a vital need in our col-
lege life, giving, as it does, an opportunity to discuss the big problems which the
nations of the world are everywhere facing.

The activities of Phil Hellenic, founded in 1916, have increased until this club
is one of the best known and most popular at Bates. The aim of this organization
is to promote a genuine interest in the classics, especially in Greek and Greek lit-
erature, and a greater appreciation of modern Greece through acquaintance with
the Greek people of Lewiston.
Worth while programs are presented at the bi-monthly meetings including de-
bates, illustrated lectures, pantomimes of Greek life, talks by Greek friends, by the
Faculty and by the students. Typical subjects which have been considered are
Modern Greece, The Greek Mind, Olympics of Today, Famous Men of Greece,
Contributions of Greece to Civilization.
Phil-Hellenic has been greatly aided in its development through the efforts of
George M. Chase, Professor of Greek. Membership in the club is limited to
thirty-five members chosen from those students having a straight B in Greek or
The social side of Phil-Hellenic should not be overlooked. Every year a ban-
quet is given at which both the Greeks of Lewiston and the members of the Club
cooperate. The Symposium carried out in true Greek style is one of the most
delightful affairs of the year. The Greek Play with its classic appeal is an im-
portant part of the club program.
The progressive democratic spirit of Phil-Hellenic promises well for the future.

The Military Science Club through the assistance of Dr. Tubbs has developed
into one of the most progressive organizations in the college. The object of the
society is to instruct as well as to promote interest along the lines of military tactics
and warfare. The membership for the present year numbers twenty-five.
The club is highly indebted to Dr. Tubbs for his interesting and instructive lec-
tures. These talks, together with personal experiences of the World War mem-
bers, have kindled much interest in the meetings of the past year.

The Press Club was organized early in the fall of 192 1 by some thirty students
particularly interested in journalism who wished to combine practical newspaper
work with the theoretical study of the subject. To further the latter purpose, a
program of speakers was arranged for the meetings. Valuable lectures on journal-
ism have been delivered by "Sam" Connor, Arthur Staples, and other men of wide
For actual journalistic work, the club has affiliations with New England news-
papers and through them keeps the public informed of what Bates College is doing.
The members are organized into groups each of which is headed by a member of
the editorial board and is responsible for collection of news of one phase of our
college activities — athletics, debating, social affairs, or club life. This efficient
organization has also proved extremely helpful to the Publicity Department of the
Million Dollar Drive.
The Press Club has at present twenty-five members who meet every second
Monday night at Libbey Forum to transact business and enjoy a short program.
Although it has been in existence for such a short time, it has already accomplished
much that is worth while and includes among its plans for the future the intention
to work for the addition of a regular course in journalism to the college curriculum.

In 1914 a group of Junior and Senior girls organized themselves into a society to
study and discuss literary subjects. The society was reorganized this year under
a new constitution, keeping much of the spirit of the charter members, but limiting
the membership by the plan found most feasible the last few years.
Seniors who have attained the rank of "at least B" in English courses are eligible
for membership and five Juniors are to be chosen each year in order that the spirit
of Seniority may continue. Louise Bryant, Helen Chase, Florence Hodgkins,
Mildred Lincoln, and Elizabeth Powers were chosen this year from '24.
Meetings have been held as usual on the second and fourth Thursdays of each
month, and they have been given over to some very enjoyable and instructive
programs. One was devoted to Norway, its music and literature, another to the
presentation of original compositions. Other interesting subjects included selections
and reviews of modern drama, poetry ana sketches of the background and works
of four New England authoresses. It is regretted that plans for the customary
Seniority Night were interrupted by the period of quarantine. The final meeting
of the year was, as usual, turned over to Dr. Hartshorn who rendered a variety of
poetic selections in his usual pleasing manner.

Alethea is an enterprising literary society whose membership is composed of girls
from the junior and sophomore classes. The organization was formerly known as
the U. A. C. C, but was later reorganized into its present form.
The aim of Alethea is to promote an interest in the liberal arts and to keep its
members in touch with current problems and events. In an endeavor to carry out
this purpose interesting and varied programs are presented by the program com-
mittee at the bi-monthly meetings. Various phases of music, literature, and art
are discussed, making the meetings very much worth while. At various times
during the year outings are held, which help to keep the girls close together in
social as well as in literary activities.

Entre Nous, an organization unique for freshman girls, has as its aim breadth of
vision and greater social fusion for its members. At the regular monthly meetings
of the society topics of current interest are discussed, and the views of the girls
solicited. Subjects from drama, poetry, art, music, dancing, and many other realms
of artistic expression are drawn upon, and at periodic times the girls make merry
at various social functions.
The present year has been a marked success in every way. The programs which
have been presented have brought to light much ability which otherwise would
have remained undiscovered. The work which has been accomplished will fur-
nish a splendid background for literary and artistic presentations in the years to

Ramsdell Scientific Society was founded in 1919 through the efforts of Juniors
and Seniors who were especially interested in science. It was named in honor of
Professor Ramsdell who has been a valuable help in promoting the progress of the
organization. The purpose of the society is to promote an interest in scientific
matters among the girls of Bates College, and has steadily succeeded in this under-
The club consists of fifteen members chosen from the Junior and Senior classes.
They must be recommended by the heads of two science departments or have had
two consecutive recommendations from one department. The branches of science
represented are Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Mathematics, and Forestry.
The meetings are held in Carnegie Science Hall on the first and third Thursday
evenings of each month. Original papers on scientific subjects are given by mem-
bers of the society. Among the subjects this year are "Coal in China," "Radio-
activity," "Darwinism," and "The Valley of Ten Thousand Smokes." Occasionally
an outside speaker talks on some branch of science in which he is particularly in-
terested. This year Dr. Tubbs gave a very instructive lecture on "The Funda-
mental Unit in Astronomy." The program is varied by trips to various places of
scientific interest where many valuable suggestions are obtained by the members.

The German Club, which was reorganized in May, 192 1, is one of the most active
organizations at Bates. Its object is to create an active interest in the literature
and life of the German people. It has the distinction of being the first club on the
campus to present a play for the benefit of the Million Dollar Fund. Two plays
were given: one in English, the other in German.
The social element finds expression in various ways. A social half hour usually
follows the meetings, during which German games are played and German songs
sung. The annual Christmas tree is eagerly anticipated by all the members.
Membership is limited to thirty-five from the Senior and Junior classes who have
had a certain amount of German. The club owes much of its progress to Dr.
Leonard, whose enthusiasm and helpful suggestions are greatly appreciated. In
every way the year's work has been a marked success.

Until the year 1922 "Le Cercle Frangais" had been the name of the men's French
society and "Le Petit Salon" the name of the corresponding women's organization.
At the beginning of that year it was planned to unite the two organizations into one
club to be called "Le Cercle Frangais". The plan proved to be very successful and
much enthusiasm has been shown.
The meetings have been well attended and pleasing programs have been pre-
sented in which members of the club have taken part. A special feature has been
the presentation of short one-act plays.
Under the helpful guidance of Professor Brown, "Le Cercle Frangais" endeavors
to promote a friendly feeling and mutual interest between its members and the
French people of Lewiston.
The members of the club feel that, in supporting the activities of "Le Cercle
Frangais" they have not only been well repaid in a greater interest in French litera-
ture and all things French, but they have also helped to prove that "Le Cercle
Frangais" is a real live organization and one which holds a prominent place among
the various campus activities.

The Macfarlane Club has been in existence six years and at the present time has
a limited membership of twenty-five students who have manifested an unusual
interest along musical lines.
The organization was named in honor of the former Portland Municipal Or-
ganist, Mr. William C. Macfarlane, who was very much interested in the musical
activities at Bates.
The meetings are held twice a month and are informal. Papers on musical mat-
ters and personages are read and musical programs are offered by the members.
The aim is to create a greater appreciation of the best music through the study of
the most famous composers and their works.

The Girls' Musical Clubs are composed of the Glee Club and Orchestra. The
membership to the Glee Club is competitive and this year numbers thirty-six; to
the Orchestra, however, all girls who play instruments of any kind are invited to
participate. This year has been one of progress not only in out of town concerts
but also in presentations at home. Much of the success of both organizations is
due to the helpful suggestions offered by Mr. Edwin Goss and Mr. Doane. The
unusual enthusiasm which has been manifested along musical lines this year pre-
dicts success for the future.

The Musical Clubs have endeavored this year to give concerts of the highest
character, which, however, has been no more than in accord with the modern move-
ment to improve collegiate music. Like all good college musical clubs they have
memorized their scores, a practice which in itself emphasizes the fact that only
the best music is worth the effort of memorization.
Mr. Faust's vigorous leadership, supported by his talent for music, was in a
large degree responsible for whatever success can be claimed by the Glee Club.
Mr. Fogg as leader of the Mandolin Club had merely to pick up his banjo and the
rest of the club was instantly and inevitably symphonized.
Early in the season an orchestra was added to the two existing clubs. This was
ably led by Mr. Monaghan, though only a Freshman. But the chief commenda-
tion must be of the rank and file who, by their attendance and practice at rehearsals,
made achievement possible.
The three concerts at Canton, Livermore Falls, Farmington and Gardiner were
a success financially, and the Clubs have reason to believe musically. At least
the audiences were appreciative.
On April 28th a home concert was given in Chase Hall in which the clubs were
assisted by Mr. Elton Young as reader and Mr. Walter Ganigan as dancer.
Great credit is due Mr. Roland F. Doane, who so ably directed the Clubs and
inspired enthusiasm by his personal interest.

A vital part of any religious service is the music. The morning chapel exercises"
at Bates are greatly aided by the college choir which renders anthems and re-
sponses, and furnishes soloists at regular intervals. Only the best musical talent
is made use of in this organization. Every fall try-outs are held and the members
chosen on a competitive basis. Rehearsals are held every Friday evening under
the direction of Mr. Edwin L. Goss. The value which is attached to this organ-
ization is evidenced by the fact that credits are given to the members toward grad-

The English \A Players are a group of students vitally interested in all that
pertains to dramatic art. As an organization, the club is the outgrowth of the class
in the drama mentioned in the college catalog as English \A and conducted by
Professor A. Craig Baird who in addition to being Professor of English and
Argumentation, finds time to act as State of Maine director for the Drama League of
America. Under his guidance two original plays were produced in May, 1922 at
the Little Theatre. These were The Morrice Train — A medieval Tragedy by
Walter V. Gavigan '24 and Bluff Now and Then — A Modern Comedy by Esther
C. Kisk '24. The students who appeared in these plays, banded together in the
fall of 1922 and made a more pretentious attempt in the field of the drama, by
giving a very delightful program of one act plays; In the Shadow of the Glen by
John Millington Synge; The Game by Louise Bryant, and Winifred Hawkbridge's
scintillating comedy The Florist Shop. Encouraged by the way in which the plays
were received, the players decided to form a definite organization, membership in
which is based upon interest and distinction in some branch of dramatics.
The last program of the club, given in May, 1923, included: What They Think
by Rachel Crothers, The Curtain by Hallie F. Flanagan and The Trysting Place
by Booth Tarkington. Thru the efforts of the club, which is being ably supervised
by Professors Baird and Robinson of the faculty, Bates claims the unique distinc-
tion of being the first college in the state of Maine to actively espouse the Little
Theatre movement, which is rapidly gaining favor thruout the country.

The Student Council became an active organization at Bates in 1910. Since that
time, with steadily increasing strength, the Council has proved itself to be one of
the most beneficial organizations on the campus.
As the governing body of the men the principal object of the Council is to
promote the general welfare of the college by bettering the conditions of college
life and by securing harmony and co-operation among the classes and individuals.
The members of the Council are elected by popular vote, each class being
The Council for 1922-23 has tried to be more than a mere governing body and
feels that the year has been a success. It appreciates the fact that only the hearty
support of both faculty and student body has made this success possible.

The women of Bates College have placed their stamp of approval on the organ-
ization of Student Government. It was first introduced in the spring of 1921, and
it is now a firmly established institution of the college. The Judiciary Board has
been given the hearty support of the student body in its efforts to carry out the
spirit and principles involved in such an organization, and this cooperation has
guaranteed its success.
The Bates Association is now a member of the International Organization, with
the privilege of sending representatives to the annual conference. The adoption
and success of Student Government mark a step in the progress of Bates College.

The Commons this year has been maintained very successfully under the new
regime. Miss Sarah Nickerson, who for the past few years has efficiently managed
the Rand Hall dining room, replaced Mrs. Lucy Hilton and Professor Gould,
faculty adviser, and managed the men's dining hall as well as the ladies' for the
first semester. She was succeeded, by Mrs. Eva Engleman, who has very success-
fully and efficiently managed the Commons from the beginning of the new year.
Mr. Harry W. Rowe, Bursar and Faculty Adviser, made it possible for the
complete renovation of the hall and equipment.
It has been the earnest endeavor of the administration to make the dining hall
most congenial and homelike.
One of the new features are the linen tablecloths. There has been a slight
advance in the price for board. The food has been most excellent, due mainly to
untiring efforts of "Aaother" Stevens, who has been with us for a number of years.
Too much praise cannot be given Mrs. Engleman and Airs. Stevens and force who
fed the sick ones during the epidemic.
The Commons this year has been exceptionally well supported by the students.
Their co-operation has been instrumental in keeping the board at a minimum rate.
A faculty table with individual service was instituted and has proved very satisfac-
tory. On the whole the year has been a marked success.

Under the guiding hand of the class of 1923, The Bates Student has enjoyed
one of the most successful years in its history. Alive to the real college issues of
the day, playing its part well in the ever-important Million Dollar Drive, boosting
Bates stock every step of the way, our weekly newspaper has demonstrated the best
in modern college journalism.
Efficient news service has been one aim of the board. Time and again the print-
ing of the paper has been held up in order that eleventh hour material might be
Variety of material appearing in the paper has been another goal, finding ex-
pression in feature articles of all kinds, human interest stories, campus, alumni,
and sport notes, literary items, society jottings, a column a week of jokes — all be-
side the "strictly news." Forty cuts and more have enlivened the appearance of
the thirty issues for the year.
A real achievement of the 1923 Student Board is the reestablishment of the mag-
azine supplement under the form of The Garnet.
The underlying policy of the paper has been to keep fresh in the minds of the
student body the highest ideals and traditions of the college.

A book of Bates !
While the 1923 Mirror is edited by members of the senior class, and while it is
particularly of interest to seniors, yet it is not merely a class book, but much more.
It is an all-college book, with a detailed account of the year 1922-1923, a treasury
of Bates life for these past nine months.
May this year's book keep fresh in the minds of its possessors the Bates they
knew, her professors, her students, her campus, her buildings — and the many more
things that make up a college.
Each year finds some improvement made over the previous year's Mirror. We
hope that this old rule may be found true when this book is read. New features
have been added over past years. An attempt has been made to make the book
not only more artistic, but also more interesting than ever before.
The Mirror Board has worked tirelessly and joyfully in compiling this record.
It will have its full reward if it has created a book that may be called truly repre-
sentative of Bates.

Silver Bay. Eight Bates men,
including Secretary A. L. Pur-

Jenkins, motored from Lewis-
ton to Silver Bay on Lake
George, N. Y. and attended
the New England Student
Conference. There for eight
days, June 15 to 23, the Bates
delegation had the "time of
their lives" in sport and study
with students from all of New
Fall Retreat. The annual
"setting up" conference was
held at the State "Y" Camp
last fall in conjunction with the
Christian Associations of the other Maine colleges. Out of thirty-seven men
present at Lake Cobbosseecontee, twenty-one were from Bates. This week-end of
September 15-17 filled the Bates group with enthusiasm for the fall work.
Welcome Freshmen! For three days preceding the Thursday of college opening,
every train arriving in Lewiston was met by "Y" autos and new Bates men were
taken to the campus. The "Y" Service Tent was maintained in front of Coram
Library for information purposes, while the Chase Hall office was open at all hours.
"Freshman Bibles" were eagerly read by incoming students. A "stag" reception,
a joint reception with the Y. W. C. A., the annual "Uncle Johnny" ride and a
cordial welcome to attend the Wednesday evening meetings were additional greet-
ings to new students.
Employment. "Can you get me a job?" "We'll try." During the fall term,
the Employment Bureau located over a hundred jobs for fifty-seven different men.
Many of these jobs turned out to be regular part time work.
Chase Hall Activities. Regular bi-monthly movie shows have been run by the
Entertainment Committee. A novel feature in "indoor sports" was introduced
when a tournament in bowling, pool, etc. was arranged between a team of Bates
men and the local St. Dominique (French) club. This tournament and a return
match were both won by the local club, but what did that matter?
Voluntary Study Groups. An average of 142 men
met in discussion groups each week, for a period of eight
weeks during the fall term, — a marked improvement
over the weekly total of the previous year, which was 53.
Eight freshman groups met and discussed topics vital
to men entering the college environment for the first
time. The leaders were Professor A. C. Baird, Profes-
sor 0. F. Cutts, Professor C. A. Jenkins, Professor F. A.
Knapp, Professor R. A. F. McDonald, Mr. A. L. Pur-
inton, Mr. Carleton Wiggin, and Mr. E. A. Woodward.
A sophomore group was conducted in each dormitory,
with Professor G. M. Chase, Professor W. A. Lawrance,
and Professor W. H. Sawyer as leaders.
The Junior-Senior Forum on "Religious Problems"
was one of the outstanding successes of the Voluntary
Study program. Dr. F. D. Tubbs was the leader of
this group. There was an average attendance of thirty-

Lewiston and Auburn, and from different parts of the state and New England.
Each meeting has been conducted, however, by a student belonging to the associa-
Among those who have presented messages have been Jefferson C. Smith, State

D. Gray, Mayor Cummings of Auburn, Mr. A. H. MacCormack of Bowdoin, Dr.
A. C. Goddard of Portland, Rev. G. F. Finnie of Lewiston, Dr. F. D. Tubbs, Rev.
M. E. Pearson of Auburn, Mr. Allen H. King of Portland, Professor C. A. Jenkins,
and many others.
Two joint meetings with the Y. W. C. A., held in Chase Hall, were very successful.
The Christmas meeting was addressed by Dr. A. N. Leonard, while Professor S. F.
Harms spoke in January.
"The Y. M. C. A. opened the deputation season very successfully last Sunday with the
sending of a team to North Anson. Three services were held during the day and a
total of 350 people were addressed. The team consisted of Secretary Purinton, Ernest
Robinson '23, Theodore Pinckney '23, Lester Diehl '23, and Frank Dorr, '25."
— Bates Student, October 20.
During the past year, eighteen deputation teams consisting of two or more
members have been sent out.
The towns visited were Mechanic Falls, Saco, Bethel, Norway, No. Livermore,
Bethel, West Minot, Walnut Hill, Livermore Falls, No. Anson, Monmouth,
Falmouth, Litchfield, Harrison. Hebron, New Gloucester, Lewiston, and Freeport.
Approximately twenty-five different men have assisted in this work.
In addition to the deputations enumerated above,
there should be recorded six cases in which individual
students were sent to conduct services.

"Over the Top."

g, arc. c. a.
When the votes were counted at the annual election of the Bates Y. W. C. A. in
1922, Gertrude L. Lombard, better known as "Bunny," was found to be president
for the year 1922-1923, with Elizabeth Powers '24, vice president; Elsie Brickett '25,
secretary; Alice Cunningham '23, treasurer; and Vivian Milliken '24, undergraduate
representative. These officers together with an efficient group of committee chair-
men constituted the cabinet which is the guiding body of the association. Before
plunging into their various tasks, however, the new members of the cabinet united
with the old in a joyous and vitalizing conference which took the form of a Long
Island house party at Casco Bay. Returning from this trip early in June, 1922,
the new cabinet looked forward with confident enthusiasm to the duties of the year.
Maqua is a place of birches, you should know — a hunting ground of joy un-
ending for one who bears a camera. During the 1922 conference, the place was
certainly as busy and delightful as any summer camp, with its tennis courts, diving
float — and besides the spring boards, don't forget the shoot ! — boats, and in the
lodge a solitary pool '.able.
As to the program of the day, for those with the strength of their convictions
an early plunge before a 7.30 breakfast, then a morning of classes. Classes at
camp — horrors ! Multiplied ! But these were quite harmless, and very informal
in nature. Some were lectures in the roughly finished open building by the lake-
shore ; others were informal discussion groups of say a dozen girls from the dif-
ferent colleges, assembled on a cottage porch. Practically all of the New England
colleges, and many of the normal schools were represented at Maqua last year —
such an assemblage of girls as you never saw before. Bates showed up well with
a delegation of thirteen. The chief charm of Camp Maqua seemed to lie in its
perfect blending of the serious and the frivolous, classes and sports. Who can
ever forget one of those moonlight song groups on the pier or about the campfire?
Yet with all the atmosphere of sports and leisure redundant, there was the under-
lying current of the quest for knowledge :
"We are here in search of truth,
Trying, with uncertain key,
Door by door of mystery ;
We are groping through His laws
To the garment hem of Cause."
Summer and Fall Activities
Before the upperclass girls go home in June, each one chooses a "Freshman
sister" to whom she writes during the summer. In this exchange of friendly
letters helpful and interesting information is given to the new girls. The Fresh-
man handbooks are sent to each girl ; in these is found a short description of all
college activities and the girls are able to become somewhat familiar with Bates
customs and traditions before they enter college.
At the opening of college each train is met by Y. W. members, and the new
girls are quickly found and escorted to their respective houses. On the first
afternoon of college a reception is given on Mt. David. Here the Freshmen
are welcomed by faculty ladies and the upperclassmen. On the first Saturday
night in the fall the Y. W. unites with the Y. M. in giving a reception in Chase
Hall to the Freshman class. The annual class ride a week or so later is one of
the big events for the entering class, and the all-day picnic furnishes a great oppor-
tunity for the forming of new acquaintances.
A membership drive is conducted among the Freshman girls in November. Its
purpose is to give them an opportunity to become Y. W. members and thus to
promote their growth in Christian faith and devotion.
This, in brief, is the way the Bates Y. W. C. A. began its year's work in Sep-
tember, 1922, under the leadership of the proper committees.
For a number of years Bates has contributed toward the support of our alumni
in China, Mr. and Mrs. Wayne Jordan. This year a campaign committee was
elected, with two representatives from each class, one from each of the Christian
Associations, and one from the Faculty. In spite of the many drives we had
been subjected to, Bates showed the good old spirit and raised a fund of approxi-
Student Friendshio Headquarters has been kept well in touch with Bates during
the past season, for work in behalf of the fund and the general spreading of prop-
aganda along this line have been some of the most vigorous activities of our under-
The Bates Y. W. C. A. has the management of another phase of college work
to its credit, that of Bible Study. Classes are held during the latter part of Octo-
ber and the four weeks of November on Sunday afternoon. The girls meet in
the various dormitories for an hour just before the evening meal to study the
Book so dear to us all, and to gain new thoughts and inspirations from exchanging
ideas with a noble and competent leader. The leaders endeavor to give solutions
to the many problems which arise from trying to carry out the principles of Jesus
on the college campus, and later in the greater school of life itself. This year the
Junior and Senior c 1 asses were most fortunate in having Dr. Tubbs as leader,
while Mrs. Gray and Mrs. Chase conducted in a most pleasing manner the Sopho-
more and Freshman classes.
sinnua! Bazaar in Chase Hall
Our Christmas bazaar this year looked like a gorgeous Japanese flower garden,
with its masses of bloom — wistaria, roses, and chrysanthemums. The booths
were very lovely with fancy work, novelties, and delicate trifles from Japan,
while the time-honored grab-bag was transformed into a most unusual well. The

Freshmen sold delicious home-made candy, and the Juniors added a new feature
in the form of a men's table framed with bachelor buttons and displaying every-
variety of masculine needs and vanities.
Tea was served downstairs in the afternoon, and at six o'clock a delicious oyster
stew supper was prepared for the hungry shoppers, who wished to stay over for
the evening entertainment. The latter was a succession of happy surprises. All
who took part in the dainty dances, clever dialogues, or charming tableaux, un-
deniably distinguished themselves. We thank "Bobby" Howe for the splendid
success of the evening; "Babe" Prescott for the fine supper, and because we cannot
thank all the others individually, we thank "Lib" Files who had charge of it all.
The Y, W. C. A. meets every Wednesday evening for a service of worship and
discussion. Student speakers often present some subject of interest to a college
audience, and several open forums have been held.
We have heard some very fine outside speakers this year, among them Presi-
dent Merrill of Central College in Turkey ; Mary Dalydiate from the International
Institute in Lewiston ; and local pastors. In the fall a series of meetings was
devoted to the explanation of the Y. W. C. A. by various means for the benefit
of the Freshmen, prior to the membership canvass. The World Fellowship Com-
mittee occasionally tells us of students in other lands, and several very enjoyable
meetings are held each year with the Y. M. C. A.
Social Service Work
The Social Service Department is one of the most active branches of the Bates
Y. W. C. A. Its manifold deeds can not be adequately told in so short a space, but
among its outstanding works of the past year are Thansgiving dinners, Christmas
trees, sunshine boxes, instruction classes at the Lewiston- Auburn Y. W., and the
sending of flowers to local families and institutions. Regular services are held on
Sunday afternoons at the local homes for the aged, and in general, the committee
is successful in making itself an instrument of cheer and blessing in city circles.
student Volunteer $roup
Leader, Philip S. Nason, '23
Secretary-Treasurer, Beatrice M. Adams, '23
The Student Volunteer Group represents one phase of the religious interests at
Bates, namely, missions. Members of the Group have definitely decided to make
foreign missionary fields the center of their life work, and have been accepted by the
Student Volunteer movement at New York as favorable candidates for such.
The purpose of the banding together of Student Volunteers in any locality is for
the development of missionary interests and for a more systematic relationship with
headquarters. The Bates group has not limited its concern to foreign fields alone,
however, as has been shown by the extensive deputation work which it has accom-
plished last year and this. A successful conference for all the volunteers in the
State was held at Bates this year and through the united efforts of the Colby and
Bates Student Volunteers a new Union for Maine was organized. There are nine-
teen Student Volunteers at Bates.

Bates Debating Council
President, Ernest W. Robinson. '23
Vice-President, Harold C. Burdon, '23
Secretary, William E. Young, '24
Treasurer, Prof. A. Craig Baird
The Bates Debating Council is the official organization which promotes class,
scholastic, and intercollegiate debating. Every year an interscholastic tourna-
ment is held. The Council negotiates all varsity contests. Membership in the
Council is limited to sophomore prize debaters, all varsity debaters, and one repre-
sentative from each class representing the student body. Women members were
eligible for the first time during the past year.
A most important reorganization took place in the fall of 1922. Under the new
arrangement, meetings are held regularly every second Wednesday, and at these in
addition to the ordinary business, an open forum discussion is held upon timely
topics. The plan is similar to the Oxford system, and has met with much approval.
Members for 1922-23 are, besides the officers: Herbert A. Carroll, '23; Theodore
R. Pinckney, '23 ; Vivienne I. Rogers, '23 ; Mildred F. Baker, '23 ; Arthur W. Pol-
lister, '24; Edward W. Raye, '24; Elton S. Young, '24; Janice Hoit, '24; Louise B.

According to the latest figures, Bates has parti-

debates. Of this number Bates has won forty-
five. A splendid record. It might be interesting
to many readers to cite a few of the reasons why
we consider Bates has made such a splendid record
and to outline the general mechanics of prepara-

Cije £>*for& debate
Bates probably reached the pinnacle of her most enviable debating record on
September 26, 1922, when the Bates Debating team composed of Erwin D. Canham
'25, Richard C. Pollister '24, and William E. Young '24 defeated the Oxford
University debating team in Lewiston City Hall in the first International Collegiate
debate held in America.
The Oxford team was composed of Edward Marjoribanks of Christ College.
President of Oxford Union; Maurice C. Hollis of Balliol College, Secretary of the
Union; and Maqboll Mahmood, a Rhodes Scholar from India, and President of the
Oxford International Union.
The question was: "Resolved, that the United States should at once enter the
League of Nations." The Bates Team upheld the negative side of the case and
received the decision by a two to one vote of the judges, and also by the popular
vote of the audience which resulted in 1301 votes for Bates against 115 votes for

Governor Percival Baxter of Maine presided at the debate and commented upon
its tremendous significance. Hundreds of prominent men and women came to
Lewiston from other cities and towns, even from great distances, to hear the con-
test. Tickets for the occasion were sold out three or four days beforehand and the
audience that filled the municipal hall that evening was described by a local paper
as being the largest that has gathered there since Roosevelt visited Lewiston in 1916.
Newspaper reports concerning the visit of the Oxford debaters to Lewiston, and
the subsequent victory, were carried in papers as far south as Washington, D. C.
It aroused editorial comment in the Outlook, New York and Philadelphia news-
papers, concerning the relative merits of the English and American debating sys-

On the evening of December 16 at Sprague Memorial Hall, New Haven, Con-
necticut the Bates debating team met a team representing Yale University for a
debate on the question, "Resolved that government ownership of coal mines in the
United States would be desirable — constitutionality granted."
The team representing Yale was composed of Willis Jerome Ballinger '23 ; Horace
Jeremiah Voorhis '23; Thomas Vennum '23. Opposed to this team were Herbert
Beaumont Morrell '25; Erwin Dain Canham '25; and William Ernest Young '24.
The presiding officer was Mr. Amos P. Wilder, editor of the New Haven Courier.
The judges, Mr. Thomas M. Steele of New Haven, Conn.; Professor Malcolm
Kier of Dartmouth College; and Judge Ernest C. Simpson of New Haven rendered
a unanimous decision in favor of Bates.

The annual freshman prize debate was held in the Little Theater, Hathorn Hall,
on Thursday evening, April twelfth. The question was: Resolved, that the Federal
government should provide for the compulsory arbitration of disputes between
capital and labor in the railroad and coal mining industries. (Constitutionality
waived). The event was in every way a success. Our genial Dean of Men
presided, and a trio from Parker Hall furnished excellent music. Contrary to the
expectations of a good many, the affirmative team won the decision; and we blame
Taylor for upsetting our predictions. Taylor won for his team a unanimous
victory, and for himself he won the unanimous decision of the judges as the best
individual debater. Taylor is to be complimented for his clear logic and his easy
platform manner. He has the very rare ability of giving the audience the impres-
sion of absolute confidence without giving the impression of over-confidence. Davis
was unanimously chosen the second best debater.
Bates Sntersetjolastic Debating Sleague
The Bates Interscholastic Debating League was a splendid success this college
year with forty-two schools of preparatory rank participating. Thirteen of these
schools won out in their local triangles and came to Bates for the semi-finals and
finals. The three schools competing in the finals were: — Deering High School of
Portland, Edward Little High School of Auburn, and Maine Central Institute of
Pittsfield. The winner of the Debating Cup was Deering High School of Portland,
which is to be heartily congratulated upon its victory. All the teams participating
made a splendid showing and the results of careful preparation and training were
evident. Most of the schools are planning to participate again next year. Under
the new policy the cup is the permanent possession of the winning school, a new
cup being given each year. Even a larger increase in Secondary schools participat-
ing in the League is expected next year.

tistotp ant) purpose
The Bates College Outing Club was founded during the winter of 19 19- 1920,
and it is the oldest college organization of its kind in the State. It is modeled along
the lines of the Dartmouth Outing Club in its purpose, which is to provide whole-
some outdoor recreation for a large number of students. The large majority of the
student body belong to the club and are therefore eligible to participate in its athletic
events, take part in trips, and use the large supply of winter sport equipment.
The club has two principal events during the year. One of these is the winter
carnival and the other is the spring trip to the mountains. The winter carnival
usually comes soon after mid-year exams, but this year because of the scarlet fever
epidemic, the carnival was held the first three days of March.
Bates was a pioneer in the carnival field, also, holding one in 1920, long before
the present craze for carnivals reached Maine. Since 1920 a carnival has been
held each year. The carnivals are backed to the limit by the student body, and
entries for the various events of the three afternoons' athletic program are never
lacking since the pointed rompetition between the four classes is very keen.
The Outing Club dance is held on the second night of the carnival. This is
one of the premier social events of the winter, and is looked forward to with con-
siderable anticipation by both men and women. Indeed the social aspect of the
carnival is quite as important to the student body as is the athletic and sporting side.
The very popular skating masquerade was altered this year because the rink was
not usable and the evening was spent in a masquerade dance in Chase Hall. That
evening the prizes were awarded for the masquerade as well as the ribbons and
the Stetson Medals for high point winners.
Thus the Outing Club does a valuable piece of work in breaking up the monot-
ony of the average winter of snow and study.
CbirD annual s@t* flxaasbington fyibz
Ten hikers from the
Bates Outing Club started
out May 29, 1922 for the
top of Mt. Washington and
returned two and a half
days later, somewhat less
fresh (!) but happy over
the third successful con-
quest of that tough old
: mile on end'
Hampshire by a group of
This hike was more am-
bitious than those of pre-
vious years, for not only
was Mt. Washington itself
included, but also the entire Hitting the Trail
range of the Northern Peaks, — Clay, Jefferson, Adams, and Madison.
Memories of the hike are vivid and varied — those chocolate bars and raisins
surely tasted good: Dr. Lawrance probably won't take a pair of patent leathers
with him next time; best of all, Crystal • Cascade brimming over with its spring
freshet, the sight of the snow piled up at the head wall of Tuckerman's Ravine,
and the hike over the range "on top of the world."
Those making the trip were Dr. W. A. Lawrance, Prof. B. E. Leete, President
William Tarr, Carl E. Purinton '23, Kenneth Conner '25, Erwin Canham '25
L. E. Walton '25, Ralph Linton '25, Arthur Martin '25, and Karl Steady '25.
Out at No-Name Pond, located some distance off a back road leading from the
little hamlet of Sabattus, the Bates Outing Club hired a camp for the winter
months. They called it Camp Juliet and it was a comfortable place to spend a
week-end "roughing it." During the enforced vacation, which followed the quar-
antine, several parties, made up mostly of those who found it advisable to remain
in Lewiston, went out there for short periods of time and braved the cold weather
and the attendant inconveniences for the sheer adventure and thrill of tasting life
in the great out-doois.
One party in particular, reports a
most enjoyable time spent at the
camp during the week prior to the
opening of school. Four in number,
the boys set out stacked with pro-
visions, and traversed most of the
way on snowshoes. They had been
told to follow a previous trail which
branched off one of the back roads
about a mile and a half from Sa-
battus, and of course, when they
came to one which seemed to have
been made by a previous snowshoe
party, they followed it — only to
realize after they had crossed many
Quarantine Days a field, that it was a blind trail.
The hikers had some idea of where the camp was situated and so kept plodding
on. Finally, one of the boys formulated the bright idea of putting some of his
geological information to a practical test. Reasoning from the lay of the land,
that a depression must be in a certain direction and acting upon this observation,
he left the road and made off thru the challenging woods. The others followed,
and in less than five minutes they came upon another snowshoe trail and following
this, they soon stepped out upon the frozen surface of the lake. Skirting the
shore, they at last reached Camp Juliet while it was yet early evening.

The material asset which is most outstanding is our new ski jump on Mt.
David. The tower and take off are well placed and enable the men to make jumps
of from 30 to 60 feet.
This new jump was constructed by the Outing Club and greatly aids the de-
velopment of ski jumpers in the College. Our men took advantage of this new
facility and have rapidly improved in form and distance. Indeed, many novices
became enthused with the sport this year and give promise of good performances
in the future.
jFourtt) annual Carnttml
The first day of the annual Outing Club Carnival was Thursday, March I.
Undazzled by the dazzling sun, the Co-eds lined up at the starting point for the
ioo yard snowshoe race, the first event of the day. Two heats were run in this race,
the first three from each heat being picked for the final race. This event was
finally won by Miss Margaret Hanscom '26; with Miss Florence Cook '25, 2nd;
and Miss Margaret Lombard '26, 3rd.
Following this event came two 220 yard ski races for the men, the first for ex-
perienced skiers and the second for novices. The winners for these two races were :
(experienced skiers) — won by Gerald Fletcher '25; 2nd, W. Gilpatric '24; 3rd,
C. Gilpatric '24; (novices) — won by Chadbourne '25; 2nd, Baker '24; 3rd, Dyer
The winners of the 220 yard snowshoe events for men were : — won by
Chadbourne '25; 2nd, C. Gilpatric '24; 3rd, Libby '24; (novices) — won by W.
Gilpatric '24 ; 2nd, Libby '24.
The woman's 100 yard ski race was won by Miss Jordan '25; Miss Ethel Crie
'25, 2nd ; Miss Nina Ulman '24 and Miss Margaret Lombard '26 tied for third place,
with Miss Dorothy Hoyt '23, third.
Miss Bernice Jordan '25 was winner of the ski slide. Miss Crie '25 was second,
with Miss Dorothy Hoyt '25, third.
Indeed, the most interesting events of the first day were the ski jumps. The
first and second places of the open jump were captured by Lovell and Flynn, re-
spectively — both of Jordan High. Baker of Bates '24 was third. The closed
event was won by Baker '24; Matsunaga '26 was 2nd ; with Archibald '25, 3rd.
Holman Huntington '25 made the longest jump of both events but was unable to
stay on his feet and was disqualified.
High point winners for the men were Chadbourne — 19 and Miss Jordan — 10.
The sophomores scored the greatest number of points.
The second day of the Out-
ing Club Carnival, March 2nd,
proved to be even more excit-
ing than the first. With the
exhilaration of a clear, crisp
afternoon, the events were run
off in a series of spirited con-
tests which thrilled the crowd
of spectators as the contest-
ants produced the best thev
A baseball game on snow-
shoes brought many a roar of
laughter midst a din of cheers
as Descoteau's ''Black Pigs" pounced on Kennelly's "Blind Bats" in a four
inning frolic which scored two runs for the "Pigs." In keeping with the sports-
manship of the baseball game was the women's snowshoe relay race, in which
"Terry" Ulman '24 led Miss Hanscom '26 only within a few yards from the tape,
and the hair raising finish between Chadbourne and Tiffany in the snowshoe
cross country race.
The Summary :
Relays: Men's snowshoe won by Juniors (W. Gilpatric, Moulton, Libby, C.
Gilpatric). Ski won by Sophomores (Burns, Dorr, Archibald, Fletcher). Wo-
men's snowshoe tie between Freshmen and Juniors — Freshmen (Misses Hall,
Chesley, Ames, Hanscom) Juniors (Misses Lamb, Stevens, Milliken, Ulman.)

obstacle, 1st, Huntington, 2nd, TifTany, 3rd, Chadbourne.
Baseball game won by "Black Pigs."
The third day began with the postponement of the skating events because the ice
was soft. No activities were carried on that afternoon. The skating masquerade
turned out to be a dancing masquerade at Chase Flail and at this time many
assembled to celebrate the closing hours of carnival.
The ribbons for point winners, the masquerade prizes and the Stetson Medals
for high point winners were presented at this time.

Winter sports in Maine received a big boost this year, when the four colleges
organized the Maine Intercollegiate Skiing Association. Bates was active in calling
the meeting, with the purpose of banding the four colleges of the state together for
the good of winter sports.

A new feature of outdoor work was begun this winter. The Physical Depart-
ment organized hiking groups which covered the surrounding country on snow-
shoes. Four of these groups took a trip each week and were enthused with the
plan which offers a sociable hike on snowshoes out of doors. This plan was backed
by the Outing Club which provided the snowshoes for many and the groups were
led by President Tarr.

What a feeling of pride and glory in his Alma Mater is stirred np in every Bates
man's heart by the memory of that never-to-be-forgotten game. Bowdoin, su-
premely confident of crushing Bates, found herself face to face with eleven men
who went into that game with the sole idea of winning, gave all they had to win,
and consequently outplayed Bowdoin in every Department of football. Was the
season a success ? You bet it was ! We beat Bowdoin !
The beginning of the season saw a new coaching staff for football. Physical
director Carl H. Smith left to take a position with Middlebury College and was
succeeded by Oliver F. Cutts, Bates '96, Harvard, and an All-American tackle.
Raymond A. Watkins, 192 1 football coach, failed to return last fall, his place
being taken by Carleton L. Wiggin, Bates '21, the. most versatile athlete the
college ever had. Bates followers felt certain that with such men as Cutts and
Wiggin at the helm of football results would be produced and they were not dis-
The schedule for 1922 was an ambitious one. In the
first game, the boys journeyed to New Haven, where
they met with a tough proposition in Yale. As it was,
however, Yale had no easy time in securing her 48
points and the score would have been very much re-
duced had she not been able to send in a fresh substitute
every other minute. Fortunately, Bates emerged from
her first battle with only minor injuries.
On November 30th, the team travelled by auto to
Durham on a day when the temperature registered
about 90 in the shade. On the first kickoff the Garnet
eleven marched steadily down the field, Rutsky, Davis,
and Fellows reeling off long gains, and a touchdown
was made within five minutes of play. New Hamp-
shire then replied with a touchdown in the same man-
ner. About this stage in the game Bates received two
injuries which hampered the men the rest of the
season. Descoteau suffered a badly wrenched knee and Rutsky had a small bone
broken in his ankle The two teams were quite evenly matched, Bates being
held for downs on the state's 1 yard line while N. H. secured two more touchdowns
before the game ended.
The following Saturday Bates lost a tough game to Tufts, a blocked kick in
the opening period spelling defeat for the Garnet. Time and again victory seemed
within easy grasp of either team, only to slip thru its fingers. Bates held for
downs when the Brown and Blue had the ball within inches of the goal line and
in the last period "Hap" Price gathered up the pigskin in mid-field and sprinted
with a clear field ahead of him only to be pulled down from behind 12 yards away
from the last chalk line. "Hatorn" Aspasian proved himself in this game to be a
small but powerful guard, on one occasion bodily keeping three of the opposing
team from going thru him.
Cbe S>tate ©eries
The state series opened October 14th with Bates opposing Colby on Garcelon
Field. Eddie Casey predicted that Colby would beat Bates by an overwhelming
score but it was another thing for Colby to go ahead and do it. Things went
along without an advantage to either side in the first quarter but in the second
the Bates line weakened and Colby made a touchdown. At the end of the half many
fans were willing to concede Colby the game but Bates has always been known
to play better the second half and this game was to be no exception. The third
quarter found the Bates team showing a superior style of play. "Bill" Guiney
was making over half the tackles. Then "Ev" Woodman was put into the game
and in the last quarter his classy open field running brought the ball to the Colby
15 yard line. Here Kempton standing well back of the line of scrimmage, heaved
a long pass far over to right into the arms of Davis who stepped over the line for
a touchdown. Davis kicked the goal and the game ended with the score, 7 all.
The next game, with Maine, resulted in a 19-6 defeat altho as one paper stated:
"Bates was never put back for loss without terrific effort against big odds."
Credit must be given to Maine, she simply had the better team. Her powerful
line, Small's brilliant open field running, and two 40 yard aerial heaves were re-
sponsible for Maine's three tallies. Bates' touchdown was the result of a long
forward from Kempton to Davis after the ball had been brought to the 15 yard
line from mid-field mainly by means of the air route. In the final quarter the
Garnet barely missed scoring another touchdown when a long pass just grazed
Guy Rowe's fingers as he raced over the goal line. Maine was obliged at all
times to work for her victory as Bill Guiney's spirit never faltered and he contin-
ually urged his men to break up the opposing offense.
The victory over Bowdoin meant more to Bates followers than the rest of the
season combined. After holding Harvard to 15 points, Bowdoin had no doubt
as to her ability to defeat a team which was obliged to accept one touchdown to
Maine's three the week before. But they had not reckoned on the determination
of Capt. Guiney's men. Coach Wiggin's plea that if he could not be on a team
that beat Bowdoin the most he could ask for was to be the coach of a team that
beat Bowdoin was not in vain. Every Bates man went on the field resolved to
give all he had to beat Bowdoin and the result was — an exhibition of perfect foot-
ball. Bill Guiney directed his warriors with never failing energy and he tackled
like a demon. Scotty was a stone wall to the Bowdoin backs and he broke up
play after play. John Davis gathered the pigskin into his arms as tho there was
no other place for it while his defense work was of the highest quality. Guy
Rowe followed the ball like a hawk, pouncing upon it after every fumble and in
the meanwhile let few plays get around his end. Doc Moulton chose his plays
The Touchdown That Beat Bowdoin!
with unerring ability while his passes were unloaded with bullet-like accuracy. In
fact every player on the team figured in the victory, their names will go down in
the history of the College. Following a fumble on the kickoff a long pass from
Moulton to Davis put the Garnet in a position to score. After several ineffectual
tries at piercing the Black and White line, "Old Reliable" John Davis was given
the ball, and with Price and Aspasian paving the way, plugged ahead the necessary
8 yards over the goal line. Bowdoin managed to annex 3 points on a field goal
near the end of the 1st half but from then on she did not threaten. The final
whistle blew, and the students, singing on the field picked up on their shoulders
Bill Guiney and John Davis, who playing their last game on Garcelon Field, had
given their all and sent Bowdoin back to Brunswick, a sadder but wiser crew.
Inspired by the brand of football they had shown against Bowdoin, the Bates
" footballers" travelled to Amherst the next Saturday and proceeded to remove the
Massachusetts Agricultural eleven from the list of undefeated football teams.
Bates was in a position to score no less than five times but fumbling was costly on
each occasion except in the beginning of the 4th period when John Davis took
the ball over from the 1 yard line. Capt. Guiney and Davis were largely respon-
sible for this victory while Scott in the line and Fellows in the backfield turned
in some pretty plays.
On November nth, Bates gave the Brown Bear a bad scare. In the first half
the Garnet backs were unable to make a dent in the impregnable Brown line where-
as the Brownies ran up a 21 point lead after successive marches down the field.
Thinking that the game was sewed up Brown put in her second team the second
half whereupon Bates resorted to the aerial game. A volley of perfect passes quick-
ly resulted in a touchdown for the Garnet. The Brown coach became greatly
worried and sent back his first string men in bunches, but not before another tally
was secured by Bates. Brown tallied once more in the final quarter, the score
In the final game of the season, Bates opposed the heavy Army eleven team.
Altho not being able to score, the Garnet eleven played the Army subs to a stand-
still in the opening quarter causing the coaches to start the entire varsity in the
second period. Army varsity did not roll over Bates with ease as the score 39-0
would seem to indicate. Once Bates held four downs on her 20 yard line while
two of Army's touchdowns came as the result of fumbles and one because of an
intercepted forward pass. The Garnet's remarkable showing against a much
heavier eleven completed a very successful season.

Last year's successful track season was ushered in by the defeat of the Univer-
sity of Vermont in a relay race held at the Boston Arena on February 4th, the
occasion being the annual B. A. A. meet. Batten, R. Buker, Sanella, and Archi-
bald were the four members of the victorious team, Archie copping the race by a
margin of ten yards. -
The Penn. relay carnival again added glory to the Garnet. Capt. Ray Buker,
the greatest distance runner ever enrolled at Bates, repeated his wonderful exhibi-
tion of the year before by winning the International two mile race against the pick
of the country. Not content with this victory, a relay team including Corey,
Batten, Sanella, and Archibald captured first honors altho pitted against Roches-
ter University, Hamilton, Hobart, Colby, and Boston University.
The dual meet with N. H. State was bitterly contested by both colleges. Bates'
strength lay in the running events and N. H. State was correspondingly strong in
the field events. So evenly divided were the honors that the winning of the discus
throw with an 112 foot heave by Leroy Luce gave the meet to Bates by one point.
Altho the Maine state meet was generally conceded to the Garnet in advance
several surprises pulled by Maine and Bowdoin upset the dope. Bates captured
three firsts, Buker in the two mile, Pete Burrill in the low hurdles, and Luce in the
discus. As a result of Landers stretching a tendon in the finale of the short dash,
Bowdoin won both the 100 and 220. The 440 proved to be a heart-breaker, Maine
and Colby placing 1st ^nd 2nd with Archibald a close third. Sanella was obliged
to admit defeat by two yards at the hands of the Bowdoin captain in the
880. The Maine leader surprised even his own followers when he won the mile
run by a comfortable margin over Ben Sargent. Bates rooters, however, were not
disappointed in Buker. Running a well-calculated race the sturdy Garnet leader
clipped 10 seconds off the former two mile record and Cyke McGinley was near
enough behind to also shatter the former record. Bowdoin's strength in the remain-
ing events, taking the shot put, hammer throw, broad and high jumps, pole vault,
and high hurdles, gave her sufficient points to win the meet, Bates placing second.
The New England Meet at Worcester resulted in Bates securing more points
than any other Maine team. The Garnet took ist and 3rd in the two mile, 1st
in the discus, 2nd in the quarter, and 2nd in the mile.
The final meet in a most successful track season, for which an unlimited amount
of credit is due Coach Jenkins, was the Intercollegiates at Cambridge. Here,
Buker, Bates' only competitor in the finals, was barely nosed out at the tape by
Higgins of Columbia in a gruelling two mile race. A photograph of the finish
leaves much room for argument as to who actually won the event.

Bates again won its relay race at the B. A. A. meet in
Boston, this year held on February 3rd, competing
against Colby and Boston University. The race nar-
rowed down early to a contest between Colby and
Bates. Frank Sanella, taking the stick from Jake
Landers passed over a comfortable lead to Simpson.
However, Archie, running anchor, received a 15 yard
handicap from Simpson. Gaining ground gradually,
he was about to pass the Colby man on the home
stretch when he was plainly driven against the boards
in the eye of all the spectators. Colby was disqualified
and the race given to Bates, who, it was evident, would

Again a Bates Relay Team came thru ! Moved up to Class C by virtue of its
showing last year, M. Burrill, Corey, Landers, and Archibald, nothing daunted,
showed their heels to Bucknell University, Brown University, Colgate College,
Howard University, University of Montreal, and Wilberforce University in the
classic Penn Relay Carnival. With a 15 yard disadvantage at the start, Archie
pulled up on the Brown and Howard anchor men who could not stand the pace
of the Bates flyer's sprint when near the worsted. Such an achievement brings
untold glory to the Garnet.
The Bates track team bettered even its own predictions by disposing of N. H.
State 80-54. The Garnet succeeded in taking all the points in the 440, mile and
two mile, and placed in every other event. Jake Landers had no trouble in copping
both the century and the furlong while "Pete" Burrill topped both hurdles in
winning form. Archie won the 440 and the 880 easily. Ben Sargent contented
himself with coaching Hodgkins, Holt and Dorr into 1st, 2nd, and 3rd places in
the mile while Captain McGinley allowed Ward and Hurley to tie before him
in the two mile. Dyer surprised his own followers by tying for first place in the
pole vault. Kenney slung the "cookie" for a first place and Peterson, unable to
lift his arm the day before, heaved the hammer for a second place. More ex-
perience with the javelin will benefit Bates as both Rutsky and Luce bettered the
winning throw but stepped over the line. Other notable point winners were Corey
who placed in the 440, 880, and broad jump and J. Simpson in the 440 and 220.
N. H.'s high point winner was Davis who won the broad and high jumps and
established a record for the latter of 5 feet 11 inches.
The State Meet at Orono bids fair to bring the pennant to Bates from its successes
in track this year. Coach Jenkins has done wonders for the Garnet; Bates could
not get along without him.

Baseball Reason 1921*22
Last year's season with a total of five games won and nine lost does not look
imposing but a brief review of the season will show that it was not one to be
The pitching staff included Captain Lee Spiller, "Hap" Price, "Silent" Martin,
and "Peanut" Hamilton. Bob Partridge, ex-'24, was on the receiving end while
the rest of the infield was made up of C. Jordan at first base, Cogan at second,
Dimlich at short, and Daker at third. In the outer garden "Bill" Kennelly held
down the center position with Rowe and Maynard Moulton on either side.
The annual exhibition game with Bowdoin was the first fray for the Garnet.
Coach Smith used three pitches but Bowdoin, fresh from a Southern tour, finally
emerged on the long end of a 6-1 score Following a practice game with the Lewis-
ton Eagles the team journeyed to Cambridge where they met with stiff opposition.
The final score sounded more like football than anything else. On May 10th the
Garnet won a close game with N. H. State on Garcelon Field. Daker secured a
niche in the hall of fame by rapping out a homer with two men on. Two days later
Maine captured the first state series contest by a two run margin, the chief cause
being "Hap" Price's inability to get his eye on the plate.
On the 1 6th of May the ball team left Lewiston for a four-game trip, the first
being with Tufts. The Garnet swatters collected ten hits off the Tufts pitcher
while Captain Spiller was allowing only four but each of the four was made to
count and in the meantime not a Bates man crossed the plate. The next game
with Mass. Aggies was won by the Garnet, Martin performing brilliantly in the
pitcher's box. On May 19th, Peanut Hamilton, pitching great ball, lost a two-hit
game which lasted ten innings to Conn. Aggies.
On their return from Massachusetts, the team again took N. H. State into camp,
this time by a 7-6 score. The game was a see-saw affair, first one side and then the
other having the advantage.
The remaining five games with the state
college did not turn out so well for the
Garnet. A second game with Maine was
lost by a lone tally, altho Peanut allowed
but a single hit. Colby and Bowdoin, the
latter twice, took the next three games from
the Garnet. However, Bates staged a come-
back in the last game by winning from
Baseball £>ea*on 1922*23
Bates is back on the baseball map. Coach Carl Wiggin has developed a ball
ceam, which, from its early showing, bids fair to be the State Champ. With
"Silent" Martin, "Peanut" Hamilton, and "Hap" Price all hurling the sphere in
rare form, Bill Kennelly should be able to look back upon a most successful season.
The annual exhibition game with Bowdoin had to be
cancelled after two spells of bad weather prevented its
being played. The first fray was with the Ramblers
of Lewiston who won 5-4. Four Bates pitchers were
used "Butch" Fellows being the only one who had
difficulty in finding the plate.
On April 25th the Garnet ball tossers journeyed down
to Cambridge to tackle John Harvard. "Hap" Price
showed wonderful control, allowing but one hit, and
that one to the redoubtable George Owen. Three
errors by his team-mates, however, lost the game 3-0.
Bates played N. H. State on the following day, losing by
a 2-0 score. Martin's offerings were connected with
safety six times while Bates was able to secure but
one hit from the N. H. pitcher. However, the latter
walked seven men against none for the Bates twirler.
In the first game of the state series the Garnet re-
peated its hockey triumph, winning from Maine by a
5-4 score with Joe Cogan as the star. Victory was by
no means certain until the last of the ninth when the Maine second baseman
juggled Moulton's grounder, allowing Davis to score the winning run. Altho
Maine persistently tied the score, "Peanut" Hamilton never allowed the University
"Bears" to get the lead and he held the advantage over Jowett all the way. Daker
and Cogan wielded the willow in fine shape and the latter got a good hand when he
nipped a hot grounder single handed on the other side of second base. Joe also
pulled a pretty play when he scored from second after Peanut had been forced at
the plate and Captain Kennelly tagged out at first.
A game with the Lewiston Eagles had to be cancelled as Omar Gauvin's birds
failed to respond to his whistle. As the Mirror goes to press chances loom bright
for the State Championship. At any rate Carl Wiggin's first year as a Bates Coach
is an enviable one and he undoubtedly is here to stay.

Following the splendid example set by last year's team, the hockey team again
won the Maine Intercollegiate Championship. The difficulty of winning this title
this year was much greater than last year because of the entrance of the University
of Maine team into the series and also the far better developed teams of Bowdoin
Although handicapped by the continual snowstorms during the month of Janu-
ary nevertheless the team made the best of its opportunities for practice and led
the state teams from the start.
The first game of the season was with Colby on the Bates rink and the Garnet
team easily buried their opponents with a score of 5 to o. The most noticeable
feature of this game was the excellent team work of the Bates team compared
with that of Colby.
The second game was with the St. Dominique team and was a red hot contest.
The St. Dominique team finally succeeded in scoring one goal which was the only
point made by either team. Score 1 to o.
Bowdoin then bowed in defeat to the Bates team. The game was very much
one-sided as the score of 12 to 1 would indicate. The work of Captain Roberts
and Cogan was especially noteworthy in this game.
The Augusta Hockey Club and the Portland K. of C. teams were the next two
victims of the Garnet aggregation. The scores of these two games were the same,
11 to 3 and although they were good contests the superiority of the Bates team
was very evident. The Portland game was played without the services of "Dick"
Stanley who was injured at Augusta.
By this time the team was in fine shape
for the games to be played at West Point
and Princeton which came as a mid-season
trip. In winning from West Point by the
score of 2 to i, Bates achieved one of her
greatest hockey triumphs. The game was
played under the worst of conditions in
regard to both lighting and ice conditions.
However, the better team work of the Garnet
stood out once more. At Princeton, al-
though the Garnet team was defeated by a
large score, the men gained a great deal of
real hockey knowledge which they used later to good advantage. Princeton was
represented by one of the best college hockey teams in this country and this
team rolled up a score of 9 to o against the Bates aggregation. It was during this
game Joe Cogan severely sprained his ankle which prevented him from actively
participating until the latter part of the season.
The season was split in two at this point by the three weeks quarantine for scarlet
fever which caused the cancellation or postponement of the games scheduled for
The next appearance of the Garnet team was at the exhibition game with the
University of Maine team at the Augusta Carnival. The team was badly crippled
because of the lack of practice and also because of the loss of the services of
Cogan and Leonardi. The game was lost by the close score of 2 to 1 and Maine
thus won the cup whirh was awarded to the winner of that game.
At the Auburn Carnival the Bates team played two games. The first was with
Bowdoin on the opening night of the Carnival and was a regular series game.
Although the play of the Bates team was much better than at Augusta Carnival
game, it had not reached its previous excellence. However, the Garnet team won
by a score of 3 to 1. This game was the first one that Cogan had participated in
since his injury at Princeton. The second game at the Carnival was with the
strong Boston University aggregation and proved disastrous to the Bates team
which lost by a score of 6 to o.
The final games of the season came on a two game trip to Maine and Colby. It
was the winning of these games that clinched the State Championship for Bates. The
University of Maine game was played on a small rink and was a red hot struggle
both in the matter of hockey and the number of fouls. At the end of the regular
periods the score stood tie 4 to 4. Two five minute overtime periods were agreed
upon and during the second period Joe Cogan succeeded in caging the winning
goal. The score of 5 to 4 would indicate that the game was no one-sided affair.
Cogan and Roberts both starred in this game.
The Colby game was one of the cleanest and best exhibitions of hockey seen for
a long time. From the very start the team work of the Garnet men easily out-
shone that of Colby and the final score of 6 to 1 shows very well the comparison
of the two teams.
An attempt was made to play a second game with Maine but the warm weather
ruined the ice surface so that the game had to be cancelled.
Much credit should go to Coach Wiggin who thru his hard work and per-
severance has been able to produce a championship team as a product of his first
season's coaching at Bates.

The state intercollegiate cross-country meet was held
this year in Lewiston on November 3rd. The weather
conditions were perfect. At the start of the pistol the
28 harriers left Garcelon Field at a stiff pace. Coming
up Central Avenue, the Garnet runners, well behind,
took the lead and maintained it to the foot of Pole Hill.
Here Hillman of Maine took the lead to be passed at
the top of the hill by Cyke McGinley, the pack mean-
while lengthening out behind. When the leaders passed
Winsor Mineral Springs, Cyke was found to be still in the lead, altho ap-
parently running hard. Raymond of Maine, loping along easily, held second place,
Hillman having dropped back. At this stage of the race, S. E. Wilson of Bates,
well up among the first five, was seized with cramps and fell heavily. He strug-
gled to his feet and attempted to carry on but fell again and was obliged to drop out.
Near the Fair Grounds Sargent was also taken with cramps and was unable to
finish. Coming into Garcelon Field Raymond began to pull up slowly on the
man ahead of him but Cyke gritted his teeth and held doggedly to the course
beating Raymond to the tape by nearly 50 yards. Dorr was nosed out of 8th place
by inches and was followed by Holt. Hurley came in 15th with Batten right be-
hind him but Maine had taken enough low points to make 38. Bowdoin, by
taking 5th and 6th places, captured second
honors with 48 while the Garnet's score
totaled 5 1 with Colby a poor fourth.
The New England hill and dale title was
retained by University of Maine when they
won the annual run on November 18 with
the low score of 49 points. The Bates har-
riers were a close second with 53 while M. I.
T., the favorites, were out-classed, taking
third with no. Hendrie, the track captain,
took the lead at the start of the grind and
held it all thru the race, winning by 200
yards. Cyke McGinley, running second,
was overcome by dizziness and his slowing
up allowed McKeeman of Maine to pass him
a few feet from the tape. Bates showed
great balance, taking 3rd, 9th, nth, 13th,
and 17th places, but lacked enough in the
unit column to win.

Last year's tennis season was not a howling success so far as wins and losses go
but some of the matches were hard fought and interesting to both players and
spectators. Captain Roberts, Dick Stanley, Carl Purinton, and Ireland, were the
first four ranking players with Fairbanks as the fifth man. Arthur Purinton, Y. M.

easy meat for Dartmouth. Bates was eliminated in the first round; Roberts by
B. U., Stanley by M. I. T. and the doubles team by Bowdoin. A journey to
Brunswick a week later gave the Bowdoin boys a 5-0 win after each match was
hotly contested. The season was concluded by a dual with Wesleyan at home on
Memorial Day, the visitors making a cleanup. Captain Roberts won the first set

expected victory to a decisive defeat when the Bowdoin
racquet wielders captured all six points. Stanley and
Fairbanks suceeded in winning the first set in their
singles matches but were unable to stand the pace.
The Garnet players were all in poor form and plainly
showed the lack of practice. The new gym will be
an invaluable aid in enabling tennis men to hit their
stride the first of the season. With a week's hard
practice and more coaching, the team should be able to
carrv thru the rest of the season with a creditable record.

Athletics have always held a dominant position in the life of Bates women. The
spirit and enthusiasm shown in all inter-class contests seems to have grown from
year to year, and now the field of athletics is holding a more important place than
The regulation of all the women's athletics is under the direction of the Athletic
Board, composed of the President, Vice President, Secretary, and two advisers,
Dean Niles and Miss Davies, together with the managers of the various sports, and
a representative from each class.
A committee was appointed by the board to revise the training rules for the
different sports. The enforcement of these rules leads not only to the physical
development of the participants in every sport, but also advancement of class spirit,
loyalty and honor.
Each girl receives a reward for total abstinence from coffee, tea, candy, and
home-made dainties. The girl who makes a first team in a sport is awarded a
whole stripe, and if she makes second team, a half stripe. After having won three
whole stripes, she is granted the privilege of wearing her Bates sweater. When she
has won five stripes, she is awarded her numerals, and when ten, her "B." An
individual cup is given to the girl who wins twenty-two stripes.
A beautiful silver cup was presented to the Athletic Association by the class of
1921. The class having the highest number of points is awarded this cup which
is to be held for one year. The class becomes the owner of the cup by holding it
for two consecutive years.
Helen Hoyt, president of the Association, has distinguished herself by winning
the highest number of stripes in athletics during her four years. She is one of the
few who have been the possessor of the cup which goes to the girl winning twenty-
The present Athletic Board voted to award regulation white sweaters with a

The Annual Gymnasium Meet was held April 3, 1923. The program, one of
the best ever witnessed by the faculty and students, was as follows:
1. Gymnastic Drill
2. Silver Star Polka
3. Gymnastic Drill
4. White Rose Mazurka
Pierre and Jeannette
5. Dumb Bell Drill
Reap the Flax
7. Apparatus Work
8. Inter-class Basket Ball Relay Race
9. Awarding of Sweaters
10. Report of Judges
It is needless to say that each class demonstrated remarkable ability in the drills
and dances. Individuals from the various classes were awarded whole stripes and
half stripes for their superior grade of work. The custom is to have the judges
make a decision as to which class has done the best work. This year the class of
'25 won the unanimous decision.
As the gym meet ends the athletic year, the points of the different classes are
added, and the class holding the highest number of points is awarded a large silver
cup to be held for one year, and after holding it for two successive years, the class
becomes the owner of it. The juniors were the highest point winners for this year.
Eight girls from each class were chosen to participate in the inter-class basketball
relay race, which furnished amusement for the audience. Next time, Bob, we'll
lower the basket three inches so the ball will slip in more easily. Victory was gained
by the freshmen who proved to be the star shooters of the race.
Previous to the decision of the judges, songs and cheers were given by each of
the classes. The party closed with the singing of the Bates Alma Mater.
The week after college opened, girls of the various classes were seen out on the
athletic field at any hour during the day. They were getting ready to play off the
inter-class hockey games which mark the beginning of the athletic program for the

The second day two equally matched teams met to determine their fate under
the leadership of Captains Hoyt and Cook. Though the seniors fought the game
through to the finish with their usual "Old Bates Spirit" and "pep," the victory
of the sophomores was due to their remarkable team work, resulting in the score
3 to 2.
As a result of the two previous games, the duty now rested upon the juniors and
sophomores to prove which was the better. This game aroused more enthusiasm
on the part of the cheering sections than either of the other two games did. Hurrah
for '24! Alas for '25 ! Score 3 to 2.
As an addition to the fall sports, hiking was introduced three years ago, and has
proved to be as successful as the other forms of athletics. The custom has been to
award a girl one whole stripe for completing thirty hour hikes including three long
hikes; one to Greene, the others to Sabattus and Taylor Pond. She receives a half
stripe for having completed twenty-five hour hikes and two long hikes to Greene
and Sabattus. Due to the great interest shown in this line of work, hiking will
become one of the major activities here at Bates.
On some of the hikes, work was combined with pleasure, as for instance, when
"Simmy" and "Zip" waded in the shoals of Lake Sabattus, capturing poor, innocent
leeches from their natural home.
First Team Champs — 1924
The weather-man decided that he no longer wished us to continue our out-door
athletics, so he caused the snow-flakes to descend on the athletic field. With the
coming of snow, we were obliged to turn our attention to indoor sports. The volley
ball games were played off without strenuous practicing or much comment. The
preliminary games between the junior and freshmen teams and the senior and
sophomore teams resulted in a championship game between the seniors and juniors.
The latter, having demonstrated their athletic ability, again walked off with the
championship. This fact must not be overlooked that the seniors had a second
team! Will you ever forget the team work of "Dot" Wheet and Ruth Leader, to
say nothing of "Smalley" in their serves and returns. If one desired to live just five
more minutes it was necessary to step lively and let the ball take its course. Three
cheers for "Team" !

The most important sport and the one which nearly every girl goes out for is
basketball. The usual interest has been shown this year, and practices began
shortly after the Christmas holidays. Everything seemed to be running along
smoothly and each class was developing splendid teams until the "bugs" inhabited
Parker Hall, thus placing the students under quarantine. However, during the
week of quarantine a very exciting game took place between the "Scarlets" under
Captain Hoyt and the "Fevers" under Captain Monteith. In this way interest
was still kept up and a sufficient number of practices were obtained so that the
games could proceed as formerly planned.

got to the close point of 7-6 at one time, but Vivian Milliken, right forward on the
junior team, came to the rescue and made two more baskets. In the second game,
the seniors defeated the sophomores by a score of 22-12. Will you ever forget
"Mil" gritting her teeth and flourishing her arms in the air much to her opponent's
discomfort? Never mind, "Mil," you did well!
Seniors 24 Juniors 18
The juniors and seniors, both having the desire to
capture the championship, made this game the most
thrilling of all. The teams were well matched and
both played hard to the finish. The first period
ended with a tie 8-8, but through the remarkable in-
dividual playing of "Zip" and the excellent team
work as a whole, the score totaled up for the seniors
Mention must be made of the fine playing done by
the second teams. The junior and sophomore teams
lived up to their class reputation, but were unable to
overcome Alberta's height and Marion's quickness.
The usual reward for faithful practice and training-
was granted in the form of the annual banquet held
in Fiske Dining Hall.
Track deserves mention in that 1923 won the meet last spring. Mabel Plummer,
the captain of the 1923 Track Team for two consecutive years, carried off the honors
in the running and jumping events last spring. Al Laing showed her ability in
winning the standing broad jump. Zip Hoyt, the third member of the 1923 track
team^ also did some fine work in jumping.
The tennis courts attract everyone from amateurs, such as Marge, to experts like
Nellie. Last year 1923 won the singles, renown due to Nellie; but 1924 proved
themselves capable of winning the doubles. No less enthusiasm is demonstrated
by the co-ed side of the campus in this sport than in any other.
During our freshman year soccer was substituted for baseball. This sport called
forth less amusement on the part of the spectators than the former sport had, for
the reason that "fishing" for the ball was forbidden. The fact is that this sport has
been worked out to a scientific degree of efficiency as was shown in the team work
of 1923 when, in their sophomore year, they came through as champions. The
championship last year was tied between 1923 and 1924. Because of the rainy
weather this tie was not played off, and the points were divided between the two
classes. If the bad weather does not descend upon us too quickly, the prospects for
developing four speedy class teams are very good.

TO ED AND JIM
(by most any co-ed)
I wandered lonely as a cloud,
A Freshman, green and tender,
At length along came gallant Jim,
My friend and strong defender.
No dumb-bell he, he knew the ropes —
His martial tread resounded
From depths of Rand, my fondest hopes
For him were quite well founded !
Jim was athletic, out for track
And co-ed tennis in the spring —
He made me love a baseball bat,
Field hockey, dancing, everything!
My Junior year, my handsome Ed
Claimed most of my attention;
For two long years thots filled my head
Of one I need not mention.
For hours in "lib" he kept me long,
Spell-bound, thrilled, with his line
I'd sit there, eyes with wonder wide,
I'd never think of time !
He trailed me round the campus
He rushed me every day !
He made Carnegie heavenly !
Dewey to him was play !
He got me what I wanted —
That dread certificate —
For Ed counts us three hours,
And Gym we have to take.

Microbes en 2®a$$t
The mass meeting in the open had assembled — all the Microbes of the dormitory
were scattered here and there through the grove of bristles on the old military hair-
brush. Some of the' younger and more active "Mikes" had climbed into the horny,
broken-over branches to give lounging space to the older and lazier "Crobes."
Cheer leader Fever, in scarlet cap, ascended the rostra of toilet water, and cleared
his throat; his every movement was greeted with heartrending and eager applause.
At length, he proclaimed through his great megaphone in sonorous tones, "Up with
the old PEP, fellows." Up the fellows got, and, in sharp staccato followed the red-
faced Fever in a cheer:
SCARLET FEVERRRRRRR ! ! ! ! !
Captain Scarlet, having ascended the effervescent platform, began abruptly with-
out introduction. "We have a great and noble fight ahead of us, my dear
comrades," he said. — "Lip with the old fight — let the despicable name of DUMONT
spur you on. Bah!!! Dumont!!! Down with Dumont !! ! Hep-hep!!! — altogeth-
er, now— DOWN WITH DUMONT !!!!!"
DOWN WITH DUMONT ! ! ! ! !
DOWN WITH DUMONT AND HOORAY FOR CAPTAIN SCARLET!!!!!!
"Who says 'go get 'em'," he continued.
GO GET 'EM!!!!!!
Alas ! the assembly was hushed — something snapped — the gathering ceased to be
an assembly at all. It was now as an audience to a grand and eloquent discourse.
"Uuuhhhhhh ! this is a helluva mess, I should say," came a voice from the
shadows of beyond.
And the echo sounded back, "A helluva mess, but how d'ye spell QLIARANTINE
— what's it cost to send a telegram to Boston:"
"Aw let's wait until after 8.30 and telephone for some grub."
"Grub ! ! ! ! ! We'll be with the grubs soon enough, you mucker !"
Some weeks passed. Things were not as they seemed. The old "Crobes" had
fought a good fight, but there had been no real victory. It was simply a fight, and
they had become inert and lifeless with the monotony of their madness. However,
the little "Mikes" back on the old brush became restless, — they were tired of play-
ing with Small-Pox, the kid they had invited in while the old "Crobes" were out
"Let's get going," they said to Pox one day. "You're small, kid, but say, boy,
you've got the kick when you do get started."
Small-Pox was very easily flattered, and before anybody could stop him, he was
on his quest for victims: ahead and all about him sounded the battle-cry of
"VACCINATION." The little "Mikes" yelled it at the top of their lungs just for
Captain Scarlet's "ego" then got the best of him. "I'll be darned if I'll let that
little sucker put it over on me," he thought, and accordingly summoned his recruits.
Out went all the microbes at his command. There ensued a slight skirmish, but
they soon lost heart, and beat a hasty retreat. Small-Pox came tearing home be-
hind them with his arm in a sling.
"AGGIE SAYS it's no use trying to make Mr. Bates close his shoobang before
June," he whimpered.

Scene — Interior of Cell 4, Monastery.
"Rob" — "Brethren, the time has come for us to gather around the sacred table.
Who desirest to shuffle the consecrated pasteboards?"
"Pkil" — "I will join thee in thy holy rook playing. But seest thou to it that no
playing cards, such as the unholy ones use, enter into this unpolluted place."
Bur don — "I will summon Friar Leavitt." (Goes out and returns with brother
monk. The four sit down, and begin a game of rook).
Leavitt (after a few moments) — "I wish that the chief provider, Harry Rowe,
wouldst serve the crispy corn flakes instead of Post Toasties for breakfast."
Burdon (laughing) — "About as much distinction there, good brother, as there is
between rook and whist Why not play real cards? Sombody said "Call
a spade a spade," yet we persist in calling the ace of spades 14 black" (Gif-
ford enters, interrupting conversation).
Gifford — "My good brothers ! Knowing the great mental strain which thou art
at present laboring under, I have brought thee some medical cigarettes, which
will most certainly quiet thy nerves, shredded as they are by this wild and
exciting game. Willst thou have one?" (Each takes one. All, holding
cigarette with whole hand, have some difficulty in lighting up. Finally, all
four players and Gifford are puffing contentedly, when in walk Hathaway and
Hathaivay — "Ha ! ha ! I have caught thee. With my bayonet I will transfix thee
to yonder wooden pillar." (Makes quick thrust. Phil retreats with a fright-
ened cry. Attention of all suddenly attracted by Carroll's loud laughter.)
Carroll — "Brethren, ye are of a goodly sort, after all. But why not decorate the
mahogany with a little cash ? I have a few poker chips in my cell which I will
gladly loan you."
"Phil" — Is a poker chip anything like a potato chip?"
"Rob" — "Thou hast desecrated this sacred place with thy unholy presence and
polluted words. Get thee hence. I command it upon my authority as chief
monk of Roger William's monastery. (Hathaway and Carroll leave, abashed.
The rook game goes on, as Gifford sits in the corner, reading a gigantic biblical

A One Act Farce Featuring Members of Bates College Faculty
Boat landing at Pleasant Pond, Maine. Professors Knapp, Robinson, Pomeroy,
Britan, Chase, Gould, Baird, McDonald, Harms, Brown, Doane, and President
Gray alight from jitneys with a profusion of excess baggage.
sammy : Well, folks, here we are. There's Freddie's motor boat and the old boy
himself in shirt sleeves and straw sun hat. We're in for a regular time.
Party gathers upon zuharf and one by one deposit t herns elves and luggage in the
various boats midst enthusiastic greetings.
pom (seated next to Freddie) : Now this is something like. It's great to get away
from all cares like this. That senior prom nearly finished me. The dance
situation is getting more and more serious. I was obliged to speak to twelve
couples personally for improper conduct on the floor and there was one other
doing a lot of dipping and shimmying, but as he was a faculty member I
couldn't say anything. I think we'll have to ask your assistance at the next
dance, Fred. The situation is getting beyond my control.
freddie: You know where I stand. I'm weady anytime to do all in my power to
uphold the ideals of Bates.
pom: You're efforts will certainly be appreciated. But let's forget our sordid
cares. I'm glad the women folks came a day early and got the pantry well
stocked. I'll be ready to eat any time.
freddie: We're all weady for a gweat time. I'm glad I own the cottage and came
early to open up. I've had a delightful time with ladies. Robert, your wife
is a wizard in the cooking line.
mac: I'll say she is. Boy, how my mouth waters when I think of that cream toast.
We'll load up heavily on the fish this week end, eh, George?
goosie: Yaws, indeed. I'm very fond of all kinds of fish. Ella says that's what
makes me so brainy.
doc britan: Charming scenery yer have around here. Wal, guess they're goin to
pass us (as launch containing remainder of party chugs by). Er, 'bout a
fifteen minute run across the pond, Fred?
freddie: Yes, sometimes we make it in ten. We can't go very fast with this load.
We're most there.
prof, rob: That must be your cottage, Fred. I see a crowd of ladies on the
veranda. (Applies opera glasses). There's Mabel coming down the steps.
Yes, and there's Blanche too. Begins to look like home.
Freddie puts ike motor in full speed and the two boats glide into the docks side
by side while entire delegation of faculty ladies rushes from the cottage to welcome
the arrivals. Profuse greetings follow.
mrs. Roberts: Well, well, this does seem good. Isn't the air wonderful? Do you
know they say we are hundreds of feet above sea level here. Why, I feel like
a new person already. I was just telling Mabel I wished Eddie could be here.
It would do him a world of good to breathe this air.
freddie: Yes, it would be fine, but he'll get the color back into his cheeks up at
mrs. Roberts: Oh, yes, the atmosphere agrees with him perfectly there. Well,
dinner's waiting. We thot we'd have it ready even if it was early. We knew
you men would be starved. Mr. Doane, do let me carry your music case.
You look overburdened.
Entire party disappears within cottage.
Scene i i — Dining Room
President Gray pronounces the blessing and the genial company (C sets to."
prexy: This little jaunt will somewhat delay my Chicago trip, but, er, I feel sure
it is worth it.
lala: Yes, I always find it so. I think right after Commencement especially one
needs a bit of recuperation. I am charmed with this place. The esthetic
setting and colorings all about give one a sense of peace which is very soothing
to tired nerves. .
goosie: Speaking of settings. I could almost imagine myself now at the feast of
Bacchus. I dare say this lemonade would seem a bit tame to the people of
railroad: In the good old days folks didn't half appreciate their blessings.
birdie: Why limit it to the people of that age? I raise the question are not the
majority of people to-day as susceptible to beverages with alcoholic flavoring
as in the Golden Age of Greece?
j. Murray: That's a very good point, Professor. Judging from the annals of
Parker Hall the average college man's point of view seems to support your
goosie: Of course, we faculty members are not very well fitted to speak from ex-
perience, but I confess that there are times when I wish myself living back in
those past centuries.
mrs. goosie: Now, now, George, don't give yourself away.
Much laughter follozvs.
mr. doane: Everybody seems to be finished. What say if we have a little music.
The suggestion is greeted by approval and the curtain falls on the second scene
amidst weird and unearthly sounds.
The next morning on the rocky beach. Entire party is attired in swimming togs.
Professor R. R. N., the only expert in the crowd, has offered his services as swim-
railroad: First we'll have a few setting-up exercises. We will practice the funda-
mental movements first in shallow water where there will be no danger. I will
demonstrate once. (Goes thru movements). Are you all ready? One, two,
three, go. (Violent splashing follows). Enough for that. Now we will go
out a little farther. I want you all to get ahold of this and the only way to do
it is to try yourselves out. I'll keep an eye on you individually. Now some
of you have had some background and you ought to pick it up quickly.
LaLa, who has a background, glides along.
railroad (observing his aesthetic curves) : You have the right idea. Your form is
perfect. It's speed now you must work for.
railroad to Goosie, who stands shivering, knee deep in water: Let me see you do
the breast stroke. That's an easy one.
goosie (makes one brave attempt but fails to keep on the surface — comes up
gasping) : I've often wondered what sensation a drowning man enjoys.
railroad: Run for your waterwings. You'll have to stiffen up a bit. All you
lack is self confidence.
mrs. goosie: Don't you think you've been in long enough to-day, George. You
know you don't want to get cramps.
doc britan: I'm goin to try swimming under water.
mrs. britan: Oh, Hal, do use a little reason. You aren't skilled enough yet.
doc: Wal, now, er, d'y spose a fish stops to reason every time he takes a turn?
No, I don't think he does. (Disappears under water and remains for the
fraction of half a second).
railroad: Take a deep breath before you go under. I believe I mentioned that
point once before to-day.
mac: (watching Railroad demonstrate the Australian crawl and the Hawaiian dive)
Pretty slick, what? That dive came like a bolt out of the blue. You can sum
that feller up in two words. As the man in the street would say — "some boy."
mrs. Roberts: It's wonderful isn't it? I feel as tho I'd accomplished a lot to-day.
Eddie said once I got the overhand I would be ready for anything.
prof rob: I race you and Miss Eaton to that rock.
mrs. Roberts and miss eaton simultaneously: It's a go.
The race starts. All watch with bated breath while Mrs. Roberts comes in ahead
and Mabel and Grosvenor pull in neck to neck.
prexy (who has been practicing fancy strokes during this time) : Er, what was it
you said Professor about the position of the arms while floating? I took a few
lessons while at the University of Chicago, but, er, I didn't pick it up very
railroad: I said by the side. If inclined to sink, paddle gently with a backward
prexy: I see, I see. (Proceeds to execute the stunt — manages beautifully for
several minutes then collides with Goosie's waterwings and loses his equili-
brium). Er, I was not counting upon your close, er, proximity, George. A
floating man is not master of all he, er, surveys.
freddie: You feel that you could float a million better than 200 avoirdupois don't
you, Pwesident Gway?
railroad (rubbing hands vigorously) : You're getting ahold of this splendidly.
Now next time be sure and review what you have learned to-day before start-
ing anything new. I'd like to speak with Professor Chase a moment.
Swimmers disappear within cottage while Railroad hands out extra pointers to
Goosie free of charge. Curtain falls on Scene III.
The same evening in the pavilion at Pleasant Pond. A troupe of vaudeville
artists from Caratunk are giving an evening performance. Faculty are seated in
conspicuous seats in the glare of the footlights, their feet tapping vigorously to the
orchestral strains of Toot, Toot, Tootsie. The curtain rises, gradually revealing
dimpled knees, spa.ngled tights , coy lips and frizzled heads. Freddie's eyes bulge;
Prexy folds his hands complacently over his stomach; Birdie leans forzvard in his
seat showing alert interest; LaLa closes his eyes and sighs for good old Paree. The
chorus starts singing Toot, Toot, Tootsie, at the same time executing intricate and
mrs. rorerts : Do you know I believe this is the very company that created such
a sensation in Music Hall a year ago.
prof, rob (scanning make-up closely): You don't say! One of those brunettes
has a misplaced eyebrow.
mac: I never thot I'd meet in with such a crowd. Some exhibition!
prexy (turning pale as the leading lady throws him a kiss across the footlights):
Er, I think, er, Doctor, er, we have made a mistake here. Er, I don't know
how you others regard this, er, but, er, it seems to me an exceedingly vile and
low down performance, er, I might say degrading and, er, personally, I think
it our duty as members of the Bates College faculty to leave the building in a
goosie: Excellent, excellent, Dr. Gray. I was hoping you would suggest that. I
am sure you have expressed the sentiments of all of us.
dr. britan: We ought surely to show folks it isn't our habit to frequent such
railroad: We don't want the trustees to get ahold of this.
birdie (after slyly winking at peroxide blonde, enjoying himself immensely, but
always ready to save his face) : Then the conclusion is that we depart?
j. Murray: I think that's the best way out. Group influence is a big factor in
mac: I'm ready to line up with you.
goosie: Let us all rise together.
railroad: I'll count three — one, two, three.
Entire party rises and files out, with two exceptions. Professors Knapp and
Pomeroy remain immovable, eyes glued to the stage , fascinated by the beautiful
twirling, swaying forms before them.
